ParentPay is an easy-to-use online system for processing payments for items such as uniform, dinners and trips. Payments can be made by credit/debit card or also through PayPoint, with full payment history and statements available to you at anytime. You can maintain your balance by setting up email/sms alerts when it is low. To get started, we will send you an account username and password, with instructions included in the letter sent home.
Parent Access Window (PAW)
The Parent Access Window allows parents to see what their child is doing in school. It is a simple website showing behaviour events, attendance, examinations and assessments, as well as school reports and letters.
PODs are pastoral hubs of the Academy and are the central point of contact for any issues regarding student welfare. There is a separate POD for each Key Stage, within which work the Assistant Principal, Heads of Year, Student Support/Child Protection Officers and Admin Managers. Pastoral care for Years 7-8 is overseen by the KS3 POD, for Years 9, 10 and 11 it is the KS4 POD, and for sixth form (Years 12-13) it is the KS5 POD.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until a school is being inspected.
