Parents and Carers

Welcome to the Parents and Carers section of our website, which aims to help you find everything you might need to support your child’s schooling, all in one central place.

Parents and Carers: Learning and Progress

SIMS Parent App

The SIMS Parent App is the most convenient way to receive up to date information about child’s homework, attendance, behaviour and achievements direct to your phone or PC.

Your Daughter and Reading

As parents/carers we often hear from schools, TV, campaigns etc. about how important reading is for our children, but this isn’t something that’s just for primary schools or for young children. Our teenagers need this focus on reading for pleasure just as much as they prepare for their adult year...

Curriculum

We are very proud of the broad and balanced curriculum we offer to all of our students. Our curriculum is designed to provide appropriate challenge to all students and foster an enjoyment of learning.

Frog Learn

Frog is our cutting edge Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), used to enhance and enrich the learning of our students and improve internal communications.

LGBT in Lessons

Our aim is to usualise LGBT+ in every part of the school community. We feel very strongly that a whole-school integrated approach works much better than using stand-alone teaching.

Options Booklets

Take a look at our 2020 Options Booklets to see what choices are available to current 9 students.

PSHRE Curriculum Information for Parents / Carers

We pride ourselves on the provision of a broad and balanced curriculum offer. We are in the fortunate position of already providing a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Relationships Education (PSHRE) to all of our young people.

School Closures

If the school is closed for any emergency reason, we will send a text message and an email to all the parents/carers for whom we hold details in our student records. It is therefore very important that you keep us up to date with any changes to your mobile phone number or email address. Information will also be available on the school’s website and social media accounts and an answerphone message will be left on the main telephone number (0161 224 4625). In addition, for short notice closures due to severe weather, local radio stations will be informed.

Requesting Information

If you would like a paper copy of any information published on this website please contact the school.

Parent View

An online questionnaire for you to give your view about this school at any time of the year. At the time of an Ofsted inspection, parents are also invited to give inspectors their views using Parent View.
