  3. 3. 8.14.1: Communicating with Parents / Carers Parent /carer involvement in college is valued and encouraged as it benefits the student, the academy and the parents / carers themselves. Parent Consultation Evenings are arranged once a year where a student’s achievement, progress and behaviour can be discussed. In addition parents/carers will receive a report once a term giving details of a student’s attainment and effort. Newsletters are sent home once every half term, giving details of college dates, activities, and special events. Concerns, complaints and compliments: in the first instance, parents / carers should contact their daughter’s form tutor by writing a note in their daughter’s Homework planner or by contacting the Year Director of Learning. Parents / carers may make an appointment to see the Principal by phoning her PA to make an appointment. If necessary there is a Complaints procedure which will be explained to any parent / carer who contacts the academy.
  4. 4. 8.14.2: Home – College Agreement A strong partnership between the academy and home is an essential for our students to succeed. Effective communication enables students to receive continuity of education, care, support and management within the home and academy settings. We aim to provide a high quality learning environment and we are committed to maximising the abilities of each student. Our aim is to enable all students to become responsible, fulfilled adults, who have the skills and confidence to be able to shape the future. We want our link with parents / carers to be strong and to be based on an open dialogue which will enable our students to succeed. Together we aim to prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, and we will promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students at our college and of the communities around us. Our students will acquire knowledge and skills; they will learn how to learn; they will communicate effectively by the written and spoken word; they will learn to work with other as a member and as a leader of a team; they will demonstrate self confidence; self motivation; they will learn tolerance and respect for others; they will learn to adapt and embrace challenges. The College Agreement We will: • Provide a centre for excellence in which all learners are of equal value and have unlimited potential for development. • Support our students so that they become confident and aware adults, in control of their own lives, who actively participate in society. • Provide parents/carer with full information about the curriculum • Report to parents/carer three times a year on progress and achievements. • Set, mark and monitor homework and provide facilities for your daughter to do homework in college. • Invite parents/carer to attend meetings, formally and informally, to discuss your daughter’s progress and achievements with her teachers. • Identify and respond to any special needs/talents.
