At Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College we pride ourselves on our effective home-school links. We believe that if every child is to do their personal best then we must work with parents and carers to support our learners.
We welcome open communication with you and encourage you to contact tutors or subject staff to discuss your child’s progress and development. Parents’ evenings are opportunities for you to come into school and meet with staff. However, newsletters, reports and direct contact from staff ensure that you are kept fully up-to-date with college life throughout the year.
This section provides you with all the infomation you need to work with us in maintaining the standards of excellence we strive for from all members of our school community.
