At Skegness Grammar School we believe that a strong partnership with parents is extremely important.
Regular programme of Parents’ Consultation Evenings exists where parents have the opportunity to meet with their child’s subject teachers to discuss progress.
All pupils have an annual tutorial with their Form Tutor to set targets for the following year and to review and discuss their progress.
We ask that parents support us in upholding key policies, such as championing high attendance and correct uniform.
We have introduced to our parents My Child at School which is the best way of looking at information on their child, updating contact details, downloading reports and accessing data and information relating to their child's progress and performance.
As part of our Home School Partnership Agreement we expect parents/carers to:
- Take an interest in the work of their son/daughter and encourage them to always do their best
- Monitor their son/daughter’s Show My Homework profile and make sure they complete it
- Make sure their son/daughter attends school on time every day and inform the school as soon as possible if they are absent
- Make sure their son/daughter has the right equipment for school and send them in the full and correct uniform
- Encourage the student to have high standards of behaviour at all times and support the school if sanctions become necessary
- Let the school know if there are any problems likely to affect their son/daughter
- Attend parents’ evenings and read letters from the school and reply if necessary
- Support the school if sanctions, for example, detentions become necessary
- Contact the school Pastoral Department quickly if worried or concerned about any issue
- Support events that the school is involved in
- Encourage the student to respect their environment.
By agreeing to these statements in this partnership we, as a school will do everything we can to support your child and make sure their time at Skegness Grammar School is very happy and successful.
Show My Homework
Show my homework provides students and parents with a live SGS homework calendar.

Show My Homework will be used permanently to set homework for students at SGS from September 2016, so we advise that you familiarise yourself with the calendar. Parents will soon be provided with a unique PIN number which will allow personalised access to a student’s individual timetable through the website or App.

If you think your child is eligible please apply for transport as soon as you have your offer of a school place.
