There is a weekly newsletter which is posted on the d6 School Communicator.  A printed copy is given only to those families who specifically request it.  The d6, our main means of communication with parents, is an innovative and exciting way of interacting with parents.


The School Communicator keeps you up-to-date with what’s happening at the school.  It updates automatically, and brings you all the latest news and calendar events.  It also contains a photo gallery, contact list and a range of useful links and documents.   Parents are encouraged to use this as the main source of information.




Installing the School Communicator is dead simple. You can download the installer from the School Communicator website:



You can install the School Communicator on as many computers as you like – for example work and home or both and your spouse. The School Communicator is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, as well as Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6.




News and relevant information is added regularly by the school. Your School Communicator will automatically update as new information is added. There’s nothing further you need to do. The School Communicator will pop up once a day when you switch on your computer, so you’re always informed of what’s happening at the school.




You can select which news and calendar information you’d like to receive. Click on the Personalise tab and select the relevant channels from the list provided.














The School Communicator is a lightweight application and should have no noticeable impact on your computer. In some instances you might need to change your anti-virus or firewalls settings to allow the School Communicator to run. If you are on a company network you might need to ask your network administrator to assist you. Over 100 000 parents are already successfully using the School Communicator, both at home and at work.




The School Communicator typically uses about 30Mb of data a month. This will fluctuate a little from month to month depending how often we update the content, but should never be excessive.




Any personal information shared with the School Communicator (including your registration details) is absolutely private, and may only be used by the school. It may not be sold or shared with any third party. The School Communicator servers are protected by Thawte to ensure no unauthorised access of your details.
