Our Home School Partnership Agreement has recently been updated to reflect changes required by the EU GDPR (European Union General Data Protection Regulations). The updated agreement will be emailed to you in due course.
Parents/Carers will soon be invited via email to join SIMS Online Services, which will give you access to the Parent App (download from Apple App Store or Google Play). The Parent App will allow you to keep us updated on changes to your contact details, your child’s details and any consents we may require (outlined in the updated Home/School Partnership Agreement).
Keep an eye out for the invitation email with a subject of: Fernwood School – SIMS Online Services Invite.
As you will be aware at The Fernwood School we are continually trying to improve the involvement of parents and carers. One of our greatest concerns is ensuring that you are well informed of events and activities. To improve communications we have already introduced an electronic communication system that allows us to send/receive text messages and emails directly to you. We believe this direct form of contact is faster and more efficient.
Emails that you receive will have a sender address of firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> so you may need to ensure that this is accepted as a safe sender so that it is not sent to your spam/junk mail.
The telephone number that will show on the text messages will be +447860095171. Please save this on to your telephone as The Fernwood School. Please note this is not replacing the school telephone number; if you want to ring the school you can still ring 0115 9286326.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the school and for nurturing such wonderful young people. I know you will welcome the new Head Teacher, Mr Burke, and support him as he leads the school through the next exciting phase of its development.
I wish you a happy, peaceful summer holiday.
