The communication between school and parent is vital in reinforcing to students that the school and you, the parent, are a team with the same goal; to support children in reaching their potential.
As such, if you email or call the school with a request for communication, we will always endeavour to respond within 24 hours.
In addition, as society becomes increasingly dependent on technology, schools are investing in technological means of communication. At Rastrick High School, we use the following systems to support our communication with you:
We use ParentMail and email to send most forms of communication to parents including letters, trip information, permission forms, alerts and reports. Parents/Carers are able to keep track of all school messages that have been sent, referring back to them at any time. The system also allows us to send a text message for important messages such as bad weather alerts.
ClassCharts allows Parents/Carers to view their child’s progress over the course of a school day, in real-time. The simple-to-use app (for iPhone and Android) can be downloaded to enable quick access to your child’s behaviour, view attendance records, access their weekly timetable, view assigned homework tasks, track scheduled detentions, and achievement points and view announcements from their school.
