To keep your children safe and ensure their well-being, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our links with you and keep everyone up-to-date and well informed. We currently use Schoolcomms, an electronic school communication system that enables you to receive information from school quickly and reliably.

Using Schoolcomms, we can send letters by e-mail to the inbox we have on record for you and short messages directly to your mobile phone as a text message.

SchoolComms allows parents to:

  • Receive letters more reliably and promptly
  • See letters in your inbox like any other email
  • Get a short text if we need to contact you urgently
  • Still get paper letters if you don’t have e-mail
  • Not have the need to rely on your child for delivery
  • Be able to reply by e-mail, text message

Communicating electronically means we can:

  • Send more letters and information
  • Save money on admin time, printing and paper
  • Contact you urgently when necessary for example unavoidable school closures due to adverse weather.

The school will use the email address and mobile number that we hold for the Priority one contact(s) in our database. If you are not certain that we have your correct details, please contact us and speak to a member of our Student Services Team.

If you change your contact details please let the school know as soon as possible.

Schoolcomms is registered under the data protection act. All information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation. Your details will only be used for the purpose of school business. You will not receive any SPAM or marketing material.

Parent/Teacher Online

For Parents’ Evening bookings, we use an internet-based system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO), which we hope will make the process of booking appointments easier for you. Using this system, you can select appointments at times that suit you best, from any internet-connected computer.

Click the quick link to Parent Teacher Online at the top the page in the ‘Parent’ drop-down menu.

If you have any problems with PTO, please e-mail admin@droylsdenacademy.com or telephone the Academy and ask to speak to Mr Fenton.


Droylsden Academy uses Google Classroom to set homework.  This is an online learning platform which will help you keep track of your child’s class and homework.

Students also have a homework planner which records the homework set and the submission dates.
