Keeping informed about your child
- How do I know what my child is studying? (Their timetable/the topics within a particular subject)
Your child’s planner has a copy of their timetable. If you don’t have that, you can contact the Timetable Officer, Mr Smith (email@example.com) or their Head of House to ask more.
FROG, the school's intranet, provides parents with access to information about their child’s learning.
- How do I know when my child is taking exams or doing controlled assessments and other work that counts towards public exams?
Each student is given a copy of their own GCSE/AS/A2 exam timetable.
- How can I track my child’s homework?
Your child should make a note in their planner of all homework and when it is due.
It can also be tracked via FROG, the school's virtual learning environment.
- How can I find out how my child is doing?
The school uses a combination of Parents' evenings and Progress reports to keep parents informed about their child’s progress.
- Parents’ evenings are held once a year. Dates are given on the website.
- Progress Reports are sent out three times a year, usually before Parents' evenings.
If you want to know more about your child’s progress in a particular subject, you can email their teacher (and cc the Curriculum Team Leader if you wish). Staff emails can be found online or you can email the school (firstname.lastname@example.org) and it will be forwarded to the teacher.
- How does the school’s discipline/reward system work?
The Ralph Allen Way is the school’s system for managing students’ behaviour. The school has five key expectations of students within the school and wider community.
- Be ready to learn.
- Enable others to learn.
- Treat others and the environment with respect.
- Work to the best of your ability.
- Fulfil your responsibilities.

- How can I/my child find out about their vivos?
All students have a vivo card which they can use to log in online to check their vivo.
- What happens if my child loses their vivo card?
They should go to the Data Office to apply for a new one.
- At what point in the discipline system does the school inform/involve me as a parent?
At C3 and C4 (and sometimes at C2) – see The Ralph Allen Way – Behaviour for Learning on the website.
