We really value your support and developing a good relationship with you is key to the wellbeing of your son/daughter. In order for that to happen, we need to have good communication channels.
We will let you know regularly what progress your son/daughter is making. We will send you reports that will outline the aspirational targets we have set, how well your son/daughter is doing and what needs to happen to achieve success. We will send these reports out every half term for secondary pupils.
We will also provide opportunities throughout the academic year for you to meet with teaching colleagues to discuss your son/daughters progress.
Beyond that, we will also have occasions through which we can celebrate the success of the pupils and to develop the community here at the Academy.
Please check the Academy website regularly for any general news and information. Important notices, as well as advice and guidance is always posted on the website. www.harristottenham.org.uk
We will also text you reminders about upcoming events or other key items. These will not cost you anything.
