Keeping in Touch
Your children's class teachers are in touch with you through a range of ways. Firstly the weekly plans are available on the home page, via email and StudyBugs. Secondly you can email your child's works for marking via an email that has been sent to you by text. The email address is: your child's year group@newcity.boleyntrust.org. For example year1@newcity.boleyntrust.org or year5@newcity.boleyntrust.org We are also using StudyBugs as a means of communication. This was set up for absences but it is an excellent way to communicate with your children's teachers during this time. 

If you have any issues please also contact the school at 020 8472 2743 or info@newcity.boleyntrust.org
