Our school subscribes to ‘ParentMail’, which is a country-wide online service providing e-mail, text and other useful communication tools for thousands of schools in the UK. It allows us to communicate with parents electronically, improve achievement by engaging and involving parents in their child’s schooling more directly, reduce environmental impact and paper waste, and monitor parental consent, permissions, etc. in a more efficient way.
Many schools in the UK already use ParentMail, and we have just introduced the updated version PMX in September 2016. All you need to do to access ParentMail, and receive information, letters, reminders, etc. electronically, is complete and sign the form below. Once we have entered your details you will receive an invitation to join ParentMail either by email or text message. Just click the link in the invitation and follow the instructions to register, and verify, your account.
With 70% of parents regularly using ParentMail on their mobile to read school messages, complete forms and permissions, and more, why don’t you download the app today!

Just some of the benefits of +Pay:
You don’t have to do anything! We will let you know via the app (or email/text message) whenever there is a trip or other event coming up. Then you can just follow the instructions to pay online!
