A very brief message this week – please download the School APP for easy access to school information. The APP Store and Google Play both have the APP for free to download, then you’ll never miss a letter again. (Probably!)

Year 6 Elterwater Residential


Today we arrived at Windermere to clearing skies rather than the forecast downpours – always a bonus! A quick stop for lunch and then it was straight into the trees for the Tree Top Trek.

Hello and welcome to another year – how time flies when you measure it in half terms. We have taken the leap into the technological world of The APP as a school. This is in response to parents indicating that this would be a much easier method of communicating information. I have to agree although I suspect we will have initial hurdles to get over in terms of how it is used. When Parent Pay also comes online we really will have the capacity to reduce the paper output from the school to practically zero and have all money collection done electronically as well. There will be the option to sign up to emails with news as well as access to the app. So I would urge all parents to download the app, it’s free and available on Google Play and The App Store. You can accses all the newsletters, news items and key dates on a calendar and sign up for alerts when a new item is posted. It also allows us to send messages about school closure and important inforamtion that needs sharing as soon as possible.

It’s a whole new world of communication and I’m looking forward to seeing it’s impact.

Mr Parkin
