Communication & Payments
At Bishop’s Hatfield we use a variety of communication systems to ensure parents and other members of our school community remain well-informed.
The main messaging system for parents and carers is our InTouch email system. All important notices and letters are sent through this and the system also enables parents to reply if needed. InTouch messages will be sent to the preferred email addresses provided and it is important to ensure that the school is informed of any changes. Copies of letters home are placed on the Parents\Letters Home page of this website.
Occasionally we may need to send a text message, either with urgent news such as school closure or to advise you that your daughter has not arrived in school. Again, it is important to notify the school of any change in phone numbers.
The school has a text facility for you to inform us if your child is absent or late. Every guardian is allocated their own individual contact number for text messages.
You will receive a text message from the school when your child enrols at the school. Please save this number in your phone and use this number only to text the school if your child is unwell or has an urgent appointment. You must clearly state your child’s name and form before 9.15am on each day of absence and the reason for the absence.
The reporting system that we use is called Go4Schools. All reports are accessible through the Go4Schools website which is available through the quick links on this website. Guidance notes are available in our Assessment section.
Social Media: Facebook, Twitter & Instagram
We recommend that parents and carers follow the school’s official Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram account. If you do not have an account yourself, feeds from these and other school Twitter accounts may be viewed on our BHGS Social Wall on the website home page.
The school uses Wisepay for all payments such as catering accounts, trips and visits. This is available through the Wisepay App using organisation code 71975131 or through the WISEPAY QUICK LINK on this website. Wisepay gives parents the added benefit of being able to track what items children are buying. Please note that cash is not accepted. Please see our Catering page for more information or contact the Finance Office.
