Houldsworth Valley Primary Academy

School Home Communication

Communicating with our parents and carers is such an essential and important part of what we do. It is vital that all of the up-to-date information about our activities, newsletters, calendars, events and school news is relayed in a timely manner to our parents and carers. It is something that really matters to us.

Please see the communication tools we use at our school to enable the smooth and safe transference of information between school and home.

If you have any issues accessing these tools please contact the School Office.


At Houldsworth Valley Primary Academy we use ParentMail for your convenience to pay for your child’s school meals or after school provision.  If you wish to use this service please give the office your current email address and they will send you registration information
