We value working closely with parents/carers to provide the best possible support for our students.
This section of the website provides access to some of the key information you may require. This includes information about admissions, the attendance procedure, activities and clubs, our home school agreement, ParentPay, school uniform, term dates and other useful links.
If you have any questions or can't find what you're looking for please do contact us.
There are many ways that we communicate with parents/carers throughout the year:
Home School Agreement
The home school agreement is a contract between home, school and students. It sets out the key expectations for everyone to work together across our school community. Further information about our home school agreement can be found here.
The Student Journal helps pupils to plan their school lives, it is also a great way for parents/carers and staff of the school to keep in regular contact. There is a space each week for teachers and parents/carers to comment on your child's progress. You are welcome to write comments, or raise matters that concern you.
However, for more serious matters the Form Tutor or Head of Year will be only too willing to see you. It is, of course, advisable to make an appointment so that your visit will not be wasted.
You are asked to check the journal daily and to sign it at the end of each week to confirm that you have seen it and that your child has completed the set homework.
We publish a regular edition of our newsletter which records events, achievements and announcements.
Parents Evenings are held at regular intervals throughout the year, providing an opportunity for staff to feed back on students' progress and parents to discuss any questions or concerns they may have.
Progress Reports for Students
At Thomas Becket we monitor student progress throughout the year. This happens five times a year and shortly afterwards a report is sent home.
Student reports provide a summary of students' achievements across each subject as well as areas for further development and next steps.
