Home School communication

Communicating with parents is important, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and things that really matter.

We are trying to reduce the amount of printed letters we send out and be environmentally aware so we have introduced an online communication system called Scopay which sends out information to parents via text message and/or email.

Parents will be provided with instructions from the school to set up an account. Please be assured that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.

Please contact the Assistant Business Manager at Mount Carmel on 01254 233458 for further details.
