We believe that engaging parents and carers is one of our main priorities. Global research proves that parents/carers who are consistently and positively engaged in their son or daughter’s learning can have a significant impact on their achievement. Walton Le Dale high School is committed to supporting parents/carers in this vital aspect, for the benefit of all our pupils. 

Communication with parents/carers through a variety of systems are listed below:-

  • House Achievement Leaders (HALs) - dedicated, full time staff with an overview of all the students in their House. As the HALs do not have a teaching responsibility, they are accessible and prompt to respond to any enquiries or concerns.

  • Tracker reports on progress

  • Parents’ consultation evenings

  • Home School Agreement

  • Subject teacher email to report progress

  • School website

  • A weekly WLD bulletin shared via email and available on our school website

  • Classcharts App with your child’s timetable easily accessible and notification of any issues with behaviour/attendance/punctuality. 

  • A Termly Parent Forum. 

A mutually supportive relationship between students, parents/carers and staff is the key to our pupils’ academic success and sense of well-being.

Parents/carers are also encouraged to make contact with the school if they have any concerns or queries. Each year group has at least one Consultation Evening where parents/carers meet with their child’s subject teachers to discuss their progress. A full list of staff can be found on the school information section of our website. The email address for staff is always as follows: staff initial . surname followed by @waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk, e.g. a.teacher@waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk
