Dear Parents
                   PARENT MAIL – NEW TEXTING SERVICE – PLEASE COMPLETE

                 Across both, schools we use a service called ParentMail®, which enables schools to
             send their letters direct to parents by email. This service is free to parents. We are now
          extending this service to include Texting. Again this is free to parents and we will use the
texts to inform you of any school closures or if a club is cancelled. Unfortunately you will not be able
to respond by text to these messages, but if you have any questions please feel free to contact the
school office.

In order to use ParentMail® we need to collect your email addresses and mobile
telephone numbers and would ask you all to complete the form below (even if you
have completed it previously). 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. Please complete the form and return to the school
office in the envelope provided as soon as possible.

                     Following discussions with the Parents Focus Group we are now considering
                         more ways of improving communication with parents/carers. We want to
                         provide a form which will be sent to all parents annually giving permission for
                          pupils to attend trips throughout the school year. You will still receive letters
                          informing you of the intended trips, with a slight change to previous letters,
                          we will be allowing you to either print off the forms and return to the school or
                        send in by email. More information will follow regarding this in the New Year.

I do hope that you see this as another step forward in improving communication between
parents/carers and the school. If you would like to attend the next Parents Focus Group meeting,
details will be sent out in the New Year. May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year.

Yours sincerely,


LESLEY CORBETT
Headteacher
