We are looking forward to welcoming your child in September, and to working with you over the next five years to ensure that your son or daughter’s secondary school career with us is happy and successful. We know that the transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting and sometimes anxious time for the pupils and we try hard to ensure they feel confident and happy about starting at Cambourne Village College in September.
A number of activities are organised to help our incoming Year 7 pupils and their parents meet the staff and become familiar with the routines of Cambourne Village College before September. Pupils from outside of catchment may find the downloads in the left-hand menu useful.
Registration Packs will be sent out via out CamVCPost (email) in the spring.
When you child joins in September, we will have processed all the information from the Registration Documents, and this will be accessible for our staff to use. Until that point, our main contact will be the primary details which was submitted via your Admissions application, received from Cambridgeshire County. This means that information will need to be shared by the primary contact with any secondary contact until the September start.
At Cambourne VC we use a number of different online systems to aid parents with communication and payments. You will be receiving further communication and set up details nearer to your child’s start at the college as outlined below.
At the college, we use Go4Schools as an online system, for recording and reporting academic, attendance and behaviour information. After your child’s first day in Year 7, you will be able to set up your account on Go4Schools by clicking the ‘First-time user?’ link on the parent login page. Please note that the email registered to your account matches the one you have provided to the college.
In order to make it easy for parents to make payments for trips, catering and equipment, we have adopted the ParentPaysystem. You will receive an email containing login details and instructions for setting up your account over the summer break, before September.
Satchel:one (Show My Homework)
Satchel:one is an online communication tool, which enables teachers to assign homework and share resources with their pupils. To set up your parent account on this system, you will need a parent code. This will be provided to you during the first term of teaching.
