Partnership for All

Our Parents / Carers

A child’s home is one of the most important influences on any child’s learning and we try to work in close partnership with parents/carers to ensure that all students enjoy the very best education. Form tutors build a relationship with parents/carers and there are many formal and informal opportunities each year to discuss a child’s progress.

Every student has Record Book which parents/carers use to keep in regular contact with their child’s form tutor and to check what homework is being set. Reports are sent home and parents/carers are always welcome to contact the school to arrange to discuss any concerns, successes, or problems.

The school has a thriving and very active Parents/carers’ Association (The Friends of Townsend) that organises a variety of social events throughout the year, raising significant funds for the school. The Association is a vital and integral part of our community and all the families of our students are welcome to participate fully in school activities.

‘In addition to the personal contact between teachers and parents, there is a constant flow of news and information from the school.’
