Parent Communications

Clear communication is very important at The Whitstable School.  We use the following methods of communication to pass information onto our parents and carers.

Email and text

We use the parent/carer contact email and mobile phone number stored in our database.  It is vitally important you inform us of any changes to either your email address or mobile phone number.  Urgent, non-urgent and pupils specific information is distributed in this way.

Letters home

We will send letters home directly in the post or with your child.  Copies of all letters sent can be found HERE.

My Child At School

This platform provides integrated school information which draws together a range of existing school systems.  It allows parents to communicate and access information about their child in one place.  

Parents' evenings

Parents evenings give parents an opportunity to meet and discuss progress with subject teachers.  We use My Child At School to manage the bookings. You will be notified via text and/or email when the system becomes live for your child's year group.

Parent feedback forum

A forum for parents to see and share the priorities and future direction of the school.  It is always run by senior leaders and provides an excellent opportunity to understand the bigger picture of the school.  Click HERE for future dates.

Google Classroom

The Whitstable School uses Google Classroom for independent learning.  As a parent or guardian you can receive email summaries showing your child's progress.  Click HERE for a guide with more information and FAQs

Social Media
