Parent/Academy Communication

New Parents

We have developed an all-encompassing guide for parents new to Ossett Academy.

This ‘Transition Guide’ is available for viewing by clicking on the link here.

Academy Contact and Communication

As part of the Academy’s ongoing commitment to develop our methods of parental engagement and communication the Academy and Parental Communication Principles is now available using the quick link below. Also available are Communication FAQs, Jargon Buster and a summary document.

The Academy recognises the importance of clear and effective communications with all stakeholders (students, parents/carers, governors, outside agencies, local and national bodies, etc), and is committed to being accessible through a range of communication channels.

The Communication Principles seek to address the ways in which the academy will ensure effective two way communication between home and the academy takes place and the expectations of each method of communication.

Leading Parent Partnership Award Engage (LPPA)

We are extremely pleased to have been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award Engage (LPPA). This award acknowledges our commitment to engage with all parents/carers at all levels and also specifically focuses on our engagement of families whose need for support is greatest.

We continually strive to evaluate, celebrate and improve our parental engagement and the fact that we were the first school in the country to gain LPPA Engage is a fantastic achievement and recognition of this. If you would like more information on LPPA, please follow the link:

Our work with parents is of the upmost importance and so we are constantly seeking to review our provision in this respect.  If you are interested in contributing to developments at the Academy then please don’t hesitate to make contact with a view to attending one of our regular Parents Forum events.  For details of the next Parent Forum event please refer to the calendar section of the website.
