At The Quest Academy we value and actively nurture parents’ engagement with their children’s education, building on the relationship that often exists between parents and primary school. We believe that your child will achieve their greatest success when staff, students and parents work together.

We will meet with you regularly to keep in touch about your child’s progress. We will provide information electronically so you can keep track of your child’s attendance, behaviour and achievements. We will invite parents to ‘keeping up with your children’ workshops.

We have high expectations of you in the same way that you will have high expectations of us. We believe that your positive contribution is the most important factor in ensuring that your child succeeds.

We recommend you set-up a Google Mail account and set this as your main contact email for messages from the school. You can change this via the Parent Portal. You can configure Google Mail to forward messages on to your normal account which may help with this issue. See: for more information.


BT email users may find messages from us in the spam folder. We recommend you specify the above address as a ‘safe sender’. Please see: for further information.
