Parent Information

Improving Links with Parents

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our links with parents/carers and keep everyone up-to-date and well informed. As sending written information home is sometimes unreliable; the school has implemented Schoolgateway which is a school communication system.

This enables you to receive all your communications from school quickly and reliably. We can send letters by email to your inbox and short messages directly to your mobile phone as a text message. Should you require further information or would like to opt in for this service, please contact the academy using the details below.

Download the APP to your phone to ensure you are getting all key information from school.

Reporting to Parents

Parents receive a termly report detailing their child’s progress, attainment and attitude to learning in each of their subjects.

These are normally sent out at the end of the Autumn, Spring and Summer term.

Year 11 students will receive their Mock Examination Results and Predicted Grades following the examinations in October and March.

Parents are also invited to attend online Parents Evenings once a year to meet subject teachers and discuss their child’s progress.

Year 5 & Year 6 Students

We are pleased to once again be able to offer Year 5 and Year 6 students a series of free monthly workshops to be held at Long Field Spencer Academy on Wednesdays from 4pm – 5.15pm. These workshops are very popular and provide children with the opportunity to get to know Long Field, whilst learning and meeting students from other local primary schools. This, of course, benefits them greatly in their preparations for the transition from primary to secondary education.

Please see below a list of the dates and subjects. We will email further details about each workshop as each date approaches, both to primary schools and directly to you, if you register with us via the email address below.



  • Wednesday 15th September – English
  • Wednesday 13th October – Science
  • Wednesday 10th November – Modern Foreign Languages
