    We have made some great improvements this year to the way we communicate with parents, carers and students about attendance, behaviour and homework. Parents and students have been letting us know how useful and informative they are finding GO 4 Schools, and particularly the app.

    With all of these changes, we have updated our Home Academy Communication Overview. Please have a look and let us know if you have any questions or need to update any of your details with us.
