Parents & Carers

At Manchester Young Lives Independent School, we value the relationship between school and parents/carers. Home and school life are closely linked for our young people, and any issues within one can deeply influence the other.

That is why we encourage your input and feedback for all aspects of school life. We hold regular review meetings to update you on your child’s progress, include you in the pre-admit process during a referral, and we constantly look for your comments, suggestions and feedback. Any issues or concerns you have, either for the personal or academic progress of any young person, will be noted and dealt with as effectively as possible.

Communication with parents/carers is key to encouraging and maintaining high standards in attendance and attainment for our students, and with your help we can ensure their success. So if you require any information or have any suggestions or comments, please get in touch here.
