We aim to work in partnership with all our families to achieve the best possible outcomes for your children. To achieve this aim, we use a variety of communication methods to keep you in touch with what is going on. And of course, we are only ever a phone call away.
Parentmail is the application Verulam uses to send email communications to parents. At the start of the school year, parents of new students receive a registration email. Once registered, all email communication will be sent via this method. It is therefore imperative that parents inform the school of any change of email address. Parentmail is a one-way communication system. If you want to contact the school via email, then please do so via firstname.lastname@example.org.
ParentPay is part of ParentMail and is a secure online payment service which allows parents and carers to make payments to the school using their debit/credit cards/Paypal account. Payments can include lunch payments, trips and visit payments, or music payments.
My Child at School (MCAS)
MCAS is a portal enabling you to view your child’s academic performance in real-time via a web browser. It provides you with access to your son’s Timetable, Attendance, Assessment Reports and Behaviour Information. It is also used to book Parent Teacher Consultation Evenings. At the start of the academic year, Year 7 Parents will receive two emails: one email containing login information and another one with an explanation as to how to navigate MCAS. It is a vital tool for parents to keep informed of their son’s school record. As it uses the email address we have for you on our system, it is imperative that you inform the school of any change of email address. Please inform us of any changes via email@example.com. If your child is going to be absent, please call the absence line on 01727 754101.
Show My Homework
Show My Homework is an online tool for viewing and setting homework.
Students will be taught how to access their homework using ‘Show My Homework’ as part of their induction.
During the first week of term, all new students will be sent their log-in details.
Parents and students are then able to access details of the homework, including deadlines, help sheets and lesson content. Students can access Show My Homework at home or at school. Apple and Android apps are also available to download which will notify students of upcoming deadlines.
Each Friday, students receive a copy of our newsletter via ParentMail. It contains news, views, important announcements and important key dates. An online copy is on our website.
A termly online newsletter to share good stories and practice from the outstanding teachers who work at Verulam.
