Often, parental involvement in a child’s education reduces when they reach secondary school. At The City Academy, Hackney we are committed to ensuring that does not happen. A key factor in the academic and personal success of young people is their parents’ engagement in their education and the communication by the school of successes and challenges, and what can be done to help at any early stage.

Parent/Carer Handbook

After feedback from parents we have reorganised our Parent/Carer Handbook into an easy-to-use A-Z format and have included additional information about lost property, Family Dining and ParentPay. Printed copies of the handbook can be picked up from reception.
