"95% of parents reported that Reading Girls' School has high expectations for their daughter"
(September 2019 curriculum evening)
At Reading Girls' School we work in partnership with parents and carers so that our students achieve the very best they can. Progress reports are issued throughout the year, giving information on each child’s achievement, attendance and attitude towards learning. For parents and carers of students in Years 7,8, 9 and 10, one Consultation Evening per year is held to enable parents and carers to discuss their child’s progress and set targets for the year. For Year 11, there are two such evenings.
On entering the school, all parents/carers and students are asked to sign the Home-School Agreement, which was devised jointly by the staff, parents and students.
The school publishes a weekly newsletter for parents on the website every week.
Parents can find background information on every aspect of school life here on the school website as well as all relevant school policies.
Text Messaging System
We occasionally need to send information to parents via a text message to your mobile phone. Please follow the steps below in order for you to access this:
- Search for "School Gateway" in the Apple App Store/Google Play or on your phone go to www.schoolgateway.com/apple (Apple) or www.schoolgateway.com/android (Android)
- Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to "Allow Push Notifications"
- When you launch School Gateway for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school
- The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and the app will be activated for you. As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, all of the text messages we send you will appear in the app; you’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal. If you would like to find out more click here
If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records. Thank you for your help.
Courtesy to Local Residents
Please remember when delivering or collecting your daughter that you should respect the law and normal courtesy with regard to parking and driving. Please do NOT park on dropped kerbs, or double park, and do remember that Northumberland Avenue is a bus route, and inconsiderate parking can cause problems for residents and bus drivers. If you must use a car, why not arrange to park a little further away from the school and ask your daughter to walk a little way rather than expecting to be dropped off/picked up directly in front of the school.
