Parents

We take great pride in ensuring that both you and your child are fully satisfied with your experience with us, here at Blackpool Sixth.

How do we keep parents and carers informed?

In September, you will receive an invitation to a Parents’ Welcome Evening so that you can meet your son or daughter’s Pastoral Mentor and learn more about the courses they are studying.

Parents’ Consultation Evenings are held each year when parents and carers have the opportunity to meet with individual subject teachers. Progress review reports and attendance reports are sent to parents and carers regularly throughout the year. Parents and carers are welcome to contact their daughter or son’s Pastoral Mentor. The Pastoral Mentor will also get in touch whenever necessary and particularly if there is a concern about a student’s work, well-being, attendance or punctuality.

Please note that Blackpool Sixth does not authorise students to take holidays in term-time. Please can parents and students use the term date information provided to plan holidays. Please click here to learn more about our academic term dates. Blackpool Sixth, therefore, does not permit holidays during term time and will refuse to readmit a student who takes an unauthorised holiday.

Parent Portal

You will have password protected access to the Parent Portal which is an online tool giving you direct access to your daughter, son or ward’s up-to-date attendance and progress data. We do value parental support for both the individual student and at Blackpool Sixth as a whole. Your views are very important to us and do affect the way in which we support the students’ learning. Please click here to access the Parent Portal.

 Ofsted Questionnaire

Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) has created a questionnaire to gather views about what parents and carers think of the quality of the education provider which their daughter/son/ward is attending.  We would like to encourage you to complete the questionnaire (available via the link below).  It consists of a small number of short questions and should take no more than a few minutes to complete.  Please do give your views about what you value about us as well as any areas you would like to see improved.  We always find feedback from parents/carers very helpful. Thank you in advance for your co-operation, to complete your Ofsted Questionnaire please click here.
