Maltby Academy now utilise a range of digital communication methods to provide key information quickly and easily to parents/carers. Emails will replace printed letters, which are only now sent to parents/carers without access to a computer or smartphone. The Academy also uses the text messaging service for short bulletins and announcements. Key benefits of using these methods include:
Academy information will be received instantly and letters cannot be lost in the post or in student bags.
Cost savings on postage, paper and photocopying.
Resource savings on staff time to produce and distribute letters for every student.
Improved frequency of information, keeping parent/carers better informed.
If you have not already done so and would like to take advantage of these new methods of communication, and to ensure that we are able to contact you in the event of an emergency, it is important that we have current up-to-date contact details including email address.
Please note the Academy can only send communications to Priority 1 contacts, which should be the parent/carers with legal parental responsibilities. Priority 2 and 3 contacts are emergency contacts only and will not receive communications.
