Keeping in Touch and Social Media 

We like to keep our parents, children and local community up to date with all the latest Academy news and information. 

Letters Home

We regularly send home letters regarding uniform, trips, news, and events via text message or email. Please make sure you read the letters carefully and complete any online permission slips promptly. 

The Website -

Copies of letters, information about the curriculum, academy policies and general information can be accessed via our academy website. 

Social Media - Facebook and Twitter

As well as the academy website, we love to showcase our children's achievements on our Facebook page (, on our twitter feed (

Parent Consultation Meetings

We hold parent meetings every term.  We believe that this provides you with the best opportunity to discuss individual's progress with class teachers.  We are also happy to arrange meetings with individual parents at a convenient time if you there are any matters you wish to discuss.

Marvellous ME & Class Dojo

All parents have access to the Marvellous ME app which allows them to track rewards, progress and access photographs of work.  This app also allows parents to communicate with class teachers.

Classes Barnsley & Royston have access to Class Dojo. 


There is a termly Headteacher's newsletter containing a variety of news, advice and information designed to support parents and children outside of the academy. Copies are always available from the academy website under the news section and paper copies can be picked up from our main office. 

Notice boards

We have 2 large notice boards at the front of the school which contain information on forthcoming events and mental health and wellbeing support.

Assemblies and Production

We hold regular celebration and attendance assemblies.  Parents and carers are always welcome to attend and share in the celebration of our children's achievements.  All classes participate in a range of productions throughout the year and we hold a graduation assembly for our children at the end of the year.

Annual Pupil Reports 

All parents and carers will receive a detailed report of their child's progress in the second half of the summer term.
