Communication to parents


Where possible, we strive to be eco friendly & to save paper, we e-mail most of our letters to parents UNLESS it includes a reply slip.  We have had positive feedback from our parents and 98% of them are happy to receive letters by e-mail.  It also means that letters are not lost by being left in school, at after school clubs, in cars etc. 

All attached files are in Adobe Reader pdf format.  if you do not have a pdf reader, you can download one FREE from the Adobe site, www.adobe.com


Mobile App

We have an app which you can download from the App Store or Google Play.  Search for School Jotter and enter the post code, WF16 9EA.  You will recognise the school badge.  Remember to allow push notifications so that you are notified when a message is posted.

We regularly use the app to message parents about events, Masses, Assemblies etc.  Please ensure that you download the mobile app so you don't miss out on this information and ensure that the office staff have an up to date mobile number.  Thank you!!

SMS text messaging

We use our text messaging service to text individual parents or year groups with relevant messages.

Attendance Awards

We have an Attendance Award at the end of every term, to recognise & praise those children who have attended school every day & arrived on time every day for the whole term.  Certificates are awarded and a draw takes place for a Gift Voucher.  See the information sheet below.
