Above are only a handful of elements within the SLG, we are always looking at other ways to support students and parents via this exciting medium. We hope that through the Learning Gateway we can reduce the amount of letters sent home from different departments and ensure information is current and relevant to you and your child/children. We want you as parents/carers to be as involved as possible in your child's learning so please help us by signing up as soon as possible. We will also be expanding the services available and these may soon include discussion groups, information and surveys for parents. As we are sure you can appreciate, this information is confidential so you MUST register to be able to gain access and be issued with a username and password. It's very easy. If you wish to have access to this data then you need to download and complete the reply slip in either word format or pdf format and return it to Bubbles Robinson at school. You will then receive an email to the address we have on file (if you have not provided an email, please contact Bubbles at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your child's name and date of birth). If you do not have an email address your password will be posted to you, but as email is being increasingly used for communication we recommend you consider getting an email account. Once you have both username (issued via pupils) and password (emailed to you) you will be able to log onto the school website www.dorothy-stringer.co.uk and click on the Learning Gateway logo at the top of the page. You will then be prompted to log on and will be able to see your child's information.
