NEALE WADE Academy has officially launched a one-stop information point so that parents can keep up to date with the latest news by simply popping into the town library.
The launch coincides with the official unveiling of the new academy uniform of black trousers and black Neale-Wade logo blazer, white shirts, burgundy sweaters and clip-on ties for the boys.
The ParentPoint information boards are the result of a partnership initiative between the college, the Parent’s Forum and March Library.
They will highlight information ranging from what is happening at the school to students’ achievements, uniform and school meals.
Governors hope the partnership will help to establish a greater presence in the town centre.

“The boards will make it easier for parents and the wider community to access information about the academy in an environment in which they feel comfortable,” he said.

The boards are currently in the entrance foyer of the library but will be moved to the adult learning section at the back where they will become a permanent fixture.
Parents Forum chair Samantha Triggs said the aim was to encourage parental involvement in a setting which was easy to get to in March town centre.
Rosie Veitch, a member of the college’s Parent Forum said: “It’s great putting information online about the school but a lot of people don’t have access to the internet so this initiative will help them.
“People may have queries they think are too trivial to approach the school with so this resource will assist them.”
