We understand how important it is to pass on information and communicate effectively with parents and families. Our main channel for sending information home is via ParentMail which allows both email and text messages to be sent from school. We are pleased to report that 100% of our families can receive text message alerts and 99% of families can receive emails to their ParentMail account.
We also use ParentMail to allow parents to pay for items such as after school clubs, school trips, book bags, water bottles etc. Our parents’ evening booking system is via ParentMail and appointments for pupil progress meetings can be made online.
PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
The PTA of Sharlston Community School is made up of volunteers (mainly parents of children at the school) who meet to work on fundraising ideas to add to school funds. These funds are used to enhance and enrich the experiences of all pupils in school. Funds have been raised by holding a summer fair, Halloween and Valentine Discos, an Easter Bingo event, weekly tuck shops and refreshment selling at the KS1/2 Sports Days (to name but a few).
