Following feedback from parents about home/school communication, the school has subscribed to a service called ParentMail® .
ParentMail® is a service which enables schools to send their letters and messages directly to parents by email and text message. A significant number of parents at our school have subscribed to the service and we hope the result of this subscription is that they are receiving information from the school in a more reliable and efficient manner. We have found the service particularly useful during the extreme weather conditions earlier this year, or when after-school clubs have been cancelled at short notice, when we have been able to send e-mails or text messages quickly to all parents.
We ask new parents to subscribe to the service. We believe that it is a more efficient way of sharing information and it will also reduce the amount of paper used by the school.
In order to use ParentMail® we need to collect parent email addresses and mobile telephone numbers and parents are asked to complete a form providing this information when their children join the school. Please be assured, the ParentMail® service is registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information supplied will be kept completely private. There is also NO advertising associated with the scheme.
