Parent App

At Hazel Wood High School, we recognise the important role smooth communication between school and home plays in our students reaching their academic potential. We therefore introduced Parent App in September 2020 to ensure that parents/carers receive the information they need regarding their child's education.

Parent App is now the main way in which we communicate with our parents and carers. Therefore, please do ensure that you use this, as it means important communications about your child, their progress, achievements and behaviour are delivered straight to your phone or smart device.

We would also like to encourage all families to become involved with our school activities. we aim to build ongoing, effective relationships between the school, families and the community and need you to help us to do this.
