We subscribe to a service called ParentMail® which enables schools to send their letters and messages direct to parents by email and text message. We hope the result of this will be that you receive information from the school in a more reliable and efficient manner, and that you will no longer need to trawl through the contents of your children’s school bags!
The system can also be used in emergencies, for example when the school is closed with no notice such as snow days. Parents can also update their own details so that mobile numbers and email addresses are always correct.
In order to use ParentMail®, when your child joins the school we collect your email addresses and mobile telephone numbers and ask you to complete a form. 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.
Our school messages will be sent from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you add this address to your email address book (or approved sender list) in order to prevent messages being blocked by your SPAM/JUNK filters. Please also check your JUNK/SPAM folder regularly in case messages go there.
