Parents

Parents and carers are the most important people in the lives of our students. In order for our work to be successful, we depend very much on their co-operation.

Parents have a legal right and a duty to be involved in the education of their children. We encourage parents/carers to telephone or come into the centre to discuss any issues concerning our students.

Parents/carers are also asked to ensure that their children have a reasonable amount of sleep and arrive at the centre on time for their day. It is very helpful if we are informed in advance when a student is going to be absent for any reason. Any unexplained absences are tracked using a Truancy Call system.

Skills Coaches make regular contact with parents/carers to keep them fully informed of progress. We take every opportunity to tell parents/carers of the good work that students are doing

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
