Communicating with parents is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter is something we care about. Traditionally we have used printed letters but delivery of these can be unreliable; they are also expensive, take time to produce and are not environmentally friendly. Historically we have also taken cash or cheque payments but we appreciate many people now pay for things online. We use ParentMail, a service used by over 5,000 schools, nurseries and children’s clubs to communicate and collect payments from millions of parents. ParentMail will be beneficial to you because: - Messages will get to you reliably by email and/or text - We can send messages directly to mums, dads and other carers at the same time - Emergency or important information can be sent by text message - You can make online payments to the school for dinners, trips, uniform etc - You can give permission for events or trips online without having to sign and return forms to us. Registering on ParentMail is simple, only takes a minute and can be done from a PC or mobile phone: One other family member, guardian or carer can also register to receive information via ParentMail using a registration code supplied by school. Please be assured that ParentMail is registered with the Data Protection Registrar and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
