Parent Contact

Parents' Evenings

We hold information evenings in the Autumn and Spring terms and an open evening in the Summer term where we get together with parents to discuss the latest educational issues facing their children.  For the Autumn and Spring parents' evenings the children send a PowerPoint or video link one week in advance of the meeting so that parents can discuss their progress with the children prior to the parents' evening.

Our induction days and evenings allow parents to begin their partnership with the Academy where they meet staff and see the Academy for perhaps the first time.

 

EduLink One

Harpenden Academy uses a portal called EduLink One which provides a convenient and accessible solution for the school to communicate with parents on all aspects of school life and also allows parents to access all information about their child in one place.
