Text Messaging Service

Following our successful pilot in Years 10 to 11 last week, we will be extending our text messaging service to all parents from Years 7 to 11 from next week.  Texts will be sent for being late to registration and for absence from school.  The 'late' text will be to inform you of the fact that your son was late to school so that you can discuss the importance of punctuality with him. The 'absence' text will be sent to parents who have not communicated with school regarding their son's absence asking them to contact the school to give a reason for the absence.  The aim of the texts is to communicate these two key elements to you effectively and efficiently to ensure the safety of all of our pupils.
