Parents and Carers
At Djanogly City Academy we recognise the importance of excellent communication with all of our parents and carers. We wish to ensure that every parent and carer has the opportunity to meet with all of their child’s subject teachers to discuss their progress and achievement and to identify important areas for development and improvement.
Every year group has their own individual Parents/Carers Evening which takes place at a key point in their academic year. At this event, every subject area and tutor group is represented. The Academy senior leadership team and members of our attendance, safeguarding and inclusion teams are also available to talk to.
Your attendance at Parents/Carers Evening is strongly recommended to enable you to continue to support your child’s achievement. We would like to recommend that if your own understanding of spoken English is limited, you attend supported by an English speaking family member or friend. The Academy will welcome their support.
How do I make appointments to see my child's teachers?
The Academy operates an appointment system for each Parents/Carers Evening. Your child will receive an appointment card and they will make appointments on your behalf. You will simply need to inform your child what time you plan to arrive at the Academy and your child will make appointments with their subject teachers and tutor on your behalf. Please make note of when parents evenings are on the term dates page and below.

Due to the vast range of school trousers which are available in the shops we often have students arrive at the academy in inappropriate uniform. Students, with support from pastoral staff are then spending time changing their trousers, or are unable to attend lessons due to their incorrect uniform. To resolve this situation and make it fair for all students we will be phasing in new DCA uniform trousers for boys and girls. These will be the same charcoal colour, but will have DCA stitched into the side of the trousers. These will be available from our uniform shop at a cost of £13.50. Full letter can be accessed here or on the year team pages.
At Djanogly City Academy we welcome and value the views of our parents and carers. We encourage you to share with Ofsted your views of our school at any time of the year using their online questionnaire called Parent View.
Your views are very important in helping inspectors form a judgment about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved upon.
Please register at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions on a variety of aspects such as the quality of teaching, level of homework and bullying.
If you do not have a computer or an email address, or if you would like help to use Parent View, please do get in touch with us. and we will be happy to help.
