Communicating with Parents
We are committed to ensuring a high level of communication with parents, so that they are kept informed of the many events and activities at the Schools. Information is disseminated in a variety of formats, both offline and online, to make keeping up-to-date as simple and direct as possible. Please see below for all of our sources of communication:
- Termly newsletter –This provides a summary of the main SES news at the end of each term. Please click here for our latest newsletter.
- Half termly e-newsletter – Every half term you will also receive a separate electronic newsletter which you can view via the website.
- Annual Review at autumn half term - A top level summary of the news, achievements and events from the previous academic year.
