Here at St Philip's, we believe that children reach their full potential if both the school and family work together as one. In order to support this relationship, we feel good communication is key. This is why we have embraced modern technology, and are able to keep you up to date via SMS text message, email and using the Parent Mail app. Parent Mail is an app you are able to download onto your smart phone, and allows you to access our weekly newsletters. Our newsletters and text message are then sent to you on Parent Mail, and you can access them in a safe, secure manner. For more information on ParentMail, click here. To register for this service, please see Mrs O'Sullivan in the office.
If you are unable to use parent mail, you will find each weekly newsletter on our website, right there on the home page.
We also send out text messages to parents and carers. These may be reminders of upcoming events, details of anything your child needs to bring into school, and we can even to let you know that your child has achieved something amazing in school!
Please ensure we have your up to date contact details at school so you are able to receive such text messages.
We also have an active twitter account! You can follow us at @st-philofferton. Our fantastic PTA also run a Friends of St Philip's page on Facebook, which will keep you up to date with any upcoming PTA events, as well as providing a handy forum to communicate with other parents and carers. You can search for it on the Facebook search facility.
