Parents and Carers

Communication with parents and carers

Parents and carers play a cruicial role in the progress and achievements of Westminster Academy students. As such, we encourage parents and carers to engage with the Academy as much as possible. 

The first point of contact for all parents and carers is their child's personal tutors. The Academy holds Parents' Evenings, Tutor Evenings and provides reports to ensure parents and carers are kept up to date and can involve themseves in their child's learning. The weekly newsletter will also inform families of important notifications and events. The Principal holds regular informal coffee mornings or after school chats with parents and carers.
