Update from Jon Whitcombe, Trust Principal -

Secondary Statement

As you will be aware, the DfE has stated that Year 10 and Year 12 students will receive some “face to face” contact with their teachers during Term 6. Currently, we are awaiting guidance from the DfE as to what this means in practice. 

Once the guidance is published we will develop our plans and make the necessary arrangements. On June 1st we will write to you explaining what “face to face” means in practice and we will be in a position to confirm when this will commence. 

Please note that the current arrangements for online teaching for Years 10 and 12 will continue until further notice.

Parent Communications

Clear communication is very important at The Whitstable School.  We use the following methods of communication to pass information onto our parents and carers.

Email and text

We use the parent/carer contact email and mobile phone number stored in our database.  It is vitally important you inform us of any changes to either your email address or mobile phone number.  Urgent, non-urgent and pupils specific information is distributed in this way.

Letters home

We will send letters home directly in the post or with your child.  Copies of all letters sent can be found HERE.

Edulink One

This platform provides integrated school information which draws together a range of existing school systems.  It allows parents to communicate and access information about their child in one place.  Click HERE for further information and FAQs.

Parents' evenings

Parents evenings give parents an opportunity to meet and discuss progress with subject teachers.  We use Edulink One to manage the bookings. You will be notified via text and/or email when the system becomes live for your child's year group.

Parent feedback forum

A forum for parents to see and share the priorities and future direction of the school.  It is always run by senior leaders and provides an excellent opportunity to understand the bigger picture of the school.  Click HERE for future dates.

Google Classroom

The Whitstable School uses Google Classroom for independent learning.  As a parent or guardian you can receive email summaries showing your child's progress.  Click HERE for a guide with more information and FAQs
