We will upload all Progress Reports as PDF files directly to Firefly, our Virtual Learning Environment as well as sending them home via email. Parents will have direct access to reports via Firefly, which is available on PC, smart phone or tablet. Parents will be able to respond directly to the SchoolComms e-mail with any queries that they have, and all responses will be monitored and passed on to the relevant member of staff.
