Keeping contact information up to date   

It is a parent and carer responsibility to ensure that changes to any email addresses and mobile phone numbers are notified to the school. To help maintain accurate records of contact information and other data regarding a pupil, a data collection sheet will be sent home to be checked and updated by parents/carers at least once a year.

Our system will notify us of any email addresses and mobile phone numbers that appear to be inaccurate and we will proactively work to resolve these queries as they become apparent.
