We have an open door policy in the academy supported by safeguarding procedures, however wherever possible we would request parents book appointments in advance.

We keep in touch with parents through:

Home-School Diaries

Staff endeavour to keep families up to date on either a daily or weekly basis. These are written on an afternoon around teaching commitments. Please note information will be minimal but you’re welcome to contact us for further information.

The School Newsletter

These are generally completed on  a 1/2 termly basis

Letters Home

These are sent regularly and vary in content, sometimes whole school and on other occasions, a specific student group


We are now using OurSchoolsApp that can be found on the App Store and Play Store. It’s a free download that you can use to view school Information, News, Calendar, contact details and more.

Coffee Mornings

These are held on a monthly basis in school.

Portland Website

The website is updated regularly to assist in keeping parents informed in respect of school events, student progress, relevant links, for example free school meals applications and compulsory policies and procedures. You are welcome to contact the school directly for further assistance/queries.

We are happy to e-mail information home when parents and carers give us their e-mail addresses.
