Keeping in Touch
Keeping you informed is very important to us. We want you to have the very best information about the school, what is happening and most importantly, how well your child is doing in school.
We do send out paper letters, but we want to move to electronic communication which is fast, environmentally friendly and easy to translate into different languages.
To be successful in this we need your cooperation and support.
Please help us!
1) We need the e mail address of each adult carer or parent
2) We need the text number of each adult carer or parent

ARBOR PARENT PORTAL
Our school keeps student records in a system called Arbor. We store your family details and your child’s records safely in line with Data Protection regulations.
You can access Arbor through the Parent Portal and view (and even change) the contact details we hold as well as see attendance and assessment data.
Parent Consultations are booked on line through Arbor by you and from September we have plans to use the payment section as well for all invoices linked to school meals, trips etc.
You will receive a log on from Arbor once we have your email address.
We are a Marvellous Me School!
Get wonderful news about your child’s learning and success.
You can download the Marvellous Me Parent App for free on to your smart phone from all the usual app stores.
We will give you a join code which is just for your child. Join and start receiving badges and messages straight from your child’s teacher!
We have special badges linked to our Jubilee Jigsaw code of behaviour as well as Headteacher awards and star learner awards which will ping on to your phone! You can high five back to say how proud you are.
You can invite partners, grandparents and carers to join up too in the settings section by tapping ‘share your app.’
Your child’s teacher can use Marvellous Me to send out reminders or requests for help so you will feel involved and up to date.
The school has a text alert system which we use for important announcements. Emergency school closures, for example, will be sent by text direct to your phone.
