Futures Institute’s preferred choice of contacting parents/carers is by text or email. It is therefore important to download the School Gateway app and also that you notify us of any changes to your contact details (primary email and mobile phone number) because the app won’t work if these are different to what we have on our database.
*If you do not have access to email or text it is important that you let us know this. We can then ensure that you receive paper copies of any letters or communications to you about your child concerning events such as parents’ evenings, trips, workshops etc. and will ensure your child does not miss out on opportunities and events during the school year.
All changes to contact details should be directed to Student Services at Wykham Park Academy by emailing them:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01295 251451 ext 249 or 230. Alternatively, your child can obtain a “Change of Contact Details” form and return to Student Services, so we are able to update our records.
