Our school subscribes to ‘ParentMail PMX’, which is a country-wide online service providing e-mail, text and other useful communication tools for thousands of schools in the UK. It allows us to communicate with parents electronically, improve achievement by engaging and involving parents in their child’s schooling more directly, reduce environmental impact and paper waste, and monitor parental consent, permissions, etc. in a more efficient way.
Many schools in the UK already use ParentMail PMX. All you need to do to access ParentMail, and receive information, letters, reminders, etc. electronically, is complete and sign the form below. Once we have entered your details you will receive an invitation to join ParentMail either by email or text message. Just click the link in the invitation and follow the instructions to register, and verify, your account.
