We have now moved to a new system, which replaces our previous Schoolcomms system. You must have this app, to receive school communications; including texts and emails. It is a vital source of information for families regarding behaviour, attendance and rewards for students, along with the source of communication between school and home.

Thank you for supporting your child at Orchard Mead by taking advantage of our unique app where you can monitor the progress and successes of your child/children at Orchard Mead Academy.
