Parent Mail


Dear Parent / Carer

It has come to our attention that many parents have not signed up to PARENT MAIL and many have not VERIFIED their account, unless this is completed, you will not be allowed to purchase any items from the list below. I thank everyone who has signed up to the system and taking full advantage of this. At present, we are no longer taking payments at reception, therefore it is very important to register and verify as soon as possible to be able to buy or receive the following:

·        Be able to pay for and receive school dinners

·        School snack

·        Uniform

·        Advice on snow day / other weather conditions

If any parents are struggling to register on Parent Mail we have organised 2 morning sessions to help you register on-line. Can you please bring a valid email address and debit card / credit card, without these 2 items we will be unable to register your account.
