Our links with Parents and Carers are very important to us. On this page, we aim to provide relevant and current information for you about life at college.
Parent/Carer Feedback – What we do well and what we can do better
We hope that your son or daughter is happy at college and that we are doing all we can to ensure he/she is well supported and on track to reach their full potential.
It is important that you have the opportunity to give us your views on all aspects of college life. We are interested in hearing about what we do well, as well as any concerns you may have. We promise to listen carefully to any issues you raise and to do our very best to put things right or improve our practice where there is a need.
In the first instance you might like to contact your son/daughter’s personal tutor. You will find alternative contacts on our contact us page and you can be assured we will ensure that your feedback is forwarded to the person best suited to deal with it.
We provide a lot of the information you need in the Support for Students – Information for Parents booklet.
Parents and Carers can access information about their son or daughter through our Parent Portal. The information includes timetable, attendance, exam timetable and student reviews. You should have received authentication codes for Parent Portal via e-mail. If you have not had your codes, we probably don’t have an e-mail address for you – so contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will start the set up process for you.
If your son or daughter is absent due to sickness please make sure that you call the absence line on 0115 929 2628 for each day of sickness. If they are absent for any other reason you should complete an Advanced Absence Notification form at least 24 hours before the absence (available from student support). More information on this can be found in the Support for Students booklet.
