For Parents 

Help, support and advice

Emerson Park Academy staff is always ready to offer help, advice and support to our parents. Please call us immediately if you require any information or support regarding any concerns you might have about your child’s progress or education.

Our Pastoral System is based on the House System. Each child has a Form Tutor who will usually remain with their Tutor Group from year 7 to year 11. The work of Form Tutors is co-ordinated and guided by a Head of House, under the direction of a Senior Pastor and Assistant Head Teacher.

In its Pastoral System, the Academy ensures that appropriate care, help and support are provided and that any problems which may arise are dealt with promptly. This support enables all children to thrive and enjoy School. Every effort is made to maintain close links with parents, who are contacted at an early stage if difficulties arise. Parents are encouraged to contact the appropriate Form Tutor or Head of House if there are any concerns. We hold an annual Academic Mentoring Day when children meet with their form tutor to discuss their progress and agree individual targets.

Links with Parents

The School regards its partnership with parents as extremely important for the well-being and good progress of our pupils and we endeavour to inform, involve and consult fully with parents. Parents are encouraged to contact the School immediately if they have any concerns. Individual progress reports can be prepared at the request of parents or viewed online. Annual Parents’ Consultation Evenings are held to enable parents to meet with individual teachers, the Head Teacher and other staff.

Each year the School holds an informal open evening for parents to visit the School prior to children transferring to secondary education. The date for this meeting is given to all parents through the primary schools. It is also published in the local press.
