Batley Girls’ High School has just signed up to a new communication system to significantly improve the communication between school and home. This service is provided by Groupcall. Though the system can still use SMS (text) messages, we also now have an app available. Please visit the site below for all the information you’ll need to get up and running. It tells you how to download the app how to get registered, and also provides any other information you may need. The system does depend on school having an up to date primary contact mobile number (the one we would use in an emergency) and email address, so if you need to provide these to school, please contact email@example.com See more here: https://www.batleygirls.co.uk/communication/

2016 saw the introduction of a new £5 note. In March 2017, a new £1 coin will be introduced, followed in September 2017 by a new £10 note. The revaluation (reval) machines in school where money is added on to food accounts do/will not support any of these new coins or notes. The school has therefore decided that we will no longer accept cash payments for food or trips, making the school an almost ‘cash-free’ environment by September 2017. It is recommended that you move to using ParentPay as soon as possible. Further information will follow, but please see this page for more information about ParentPay in school. A letter will shortly be sent home, but you can see a version of it here.
