At Ryde Academy we recognise the importance of home to school communication. Our communications guidelines outlines what you can expect from us in terms of communication and how you can help us achieve our aims. Parental engagement is at the heart of what we do and part of this is to have in place effective and reciprocal methods of communication.

Additional Contacts

Your child's Form Tutor will remain a key point of contact for parents/carers. However, as Form Tutors are teachers they are not always available during the day to respond to queries, therefore the Year Manager will be the single day-to-day point of contact for immediate queries. The Year Manager can be contacted by telephone on 01983 567331, or by e-mail:

Attendance Officer:

Miss K Young
