We recognise that to succeed in our ambition to be an excellent College with an Islamic Ethos, students will need a high level of support at home, at College and in their community.
Creating a partnership with parents depends on having regular and positive contact, building trust and confidence and a genuine commitment to involve parents in supporting their child's learning. We aim to keep in regular contact through newsletters, telephone, letters, informal meetings and parent consultation evenings.

Clarification of the policy covering travel between home, school and college
Following a complaint a review of the Council's School Travel Policy has taken place. The council would like to bring to the attention of parents the eligibility criteria for travel assistance on grounds of religion and belief.
When determining eligibility for assistance with travel on grounds of religion or belief the Council does not make any distinction between schools which are single sex or mixed sex and will use the nearest available school of the religion or belief of the parent not the parents preferred school.
The revised wording of the section for religion or belief is set out below.
2. Religion or Belief
When determining assistance with transport for this part of the policy the Council does not make any distinction between schools which are single sex or mixed sex schools when determining which is the nearest available school of the religion or belief or lack of belief of the parent/carer of the pupil. Measurement will be made to the nearest available school of the religion or belief or lack of belief of the parent not to the parents preferred school.
Raising the Participation Age (RPA)
The Importance of Teaching, the Government confirmed its commitment to raising the participation age to 18 by 2015. At the present time attendance at school is compulsory until the end of Year 11 for all young people in England. Although post-16 options in training and education are open to them, there is no compulsory element to this and young people can choose to participate or not. Under the Raising Participation legislation this is changing. From the summer of 2015 onwards it will be compulsory for all young people to remain in schooling until the end of Year 11 (as at present) and, following on from that, participate in education or training, until at least their 18th birthday. More detailed information can be found here.
