School Term is well underway and we have really enjoyed walking around our corridors and classrooms welcoming back all of our learners who were here last year and saying hello to our new Year 7’s. We would like to take this early opportunity to say a big welcome back to all of our parents and carers and to thank them in advance for another year of well received support for the school.
As you will be aware, one of our school beliefs is excellent communication. Specifically, we strive for ‘good understanding of each other’ and ‘clarity of purpose’ in all our messaging. We had great feedback from so many of you last year in this area, especially around our online learning and support for learners and families. To that end, we will be carrying on with our half-termly catch-up calls from your child's tutor with the aim of ensuring you are happy with your child's experience. Please do tell us what is going well and if you do have any issues, please do raise them and we will address them.
We strive to be open and approachable at all times. To this end, if you wish to inform us of something or to speak to a teacher/Head of Year/School Leader, please use the contact form on the website and someone will respond to you via email or phone as soon as we can. If the matter is urgent or concerns the safety of any child, please phone the school, speak to our receptionist and let us know that it is a safeguarding matter.
Other important sources of information are, of course, our website; www.harrowhigh.com and Twitter feed @HarrowHighSch. Please keep your eyes on these for important messages and news about what we are up to.
We will also make contact with you via email, either for matters specific to your child, their year group or even the whole school so please ensure we have the correct details for this. You can update your contact details, including email address via the SIMS in touch app. This also contains other information about your child’s schooling including details of achievement and attendance. If you don’t currently use this, a guide for how to get involved is available here.
For further information or if you would like help downloading the App please contact Mr Yazdizad, IT Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, the school will be producing a bi-weekly newsletter with details of whole school matters and upcoming events in each year group. This will come to you via email and will be available to download via the school website so please do read this carefully.
