communications for Parents & Students
AT FRA, WE USE A NUMBER OF ONLINE SYSTEMS AND TOOLS TO HELP YOU AND YOUR CHILD ORGANISE THEIR WORK AND TRACK TASKS & COMMUNICATE.
At FRA, we use an online workspace called Firefly. Inside Firefly, you will be able to see:
- your child’s weekly schedule
- lesson outlines and exemplar work
- revision topics
- homework tasks
Both you and your child will receive login details. You will be able to see the work that your child is completing on a week by week basis, view their homework task list and see which topics have been flagged for revision.
Each student at the academy has access to GSuite. The Google system allows students to create, edit, share online resources and email facilities.
At Fowey we use a number of different ways to communicate with parents. First and foremost, we will always communicate with you personally about your child via ParentMail and/or about important matters relating to the school. We may at times also send messages out via social media as this is sometimes a quicker way to get the message out, but ParentMail will always be our preferred choice for important messages.
ParentMail is a system used at Fowey River Academy which helps improve communications between school and parents.
Your account can be accessed from your computer or by using the free mobile app.
ParentMail is an email and text messaging system which is personalised to you, which makes it quick and easy for the Academy to send communication, messages and letters to parents. ParentMail also handles online payments to the academy.
Social media & other channels
We use social media to compliment ParentMail when sending important information, but also to promote all the things that we do at FRA. Social Media is an important tool for engaging with parents and we aim to be very responsive via a number of messaging services through social media. Please be aware that if we have important information, ParentMail will always be our preferred choice of communication with social media used as a backup.
