Parent communications



We have two main ways of communicating with parents: a system called Ed:Gen and our weekly Head of School updates.  We will occasionally send additional emails during the week if urgent or necessary but try to keep these to a minimum.

Parent portal from Ed:Gen

We use this to share information with parents about their child’s progress for example rewards they have received in school as well as our formal reports.  You can also find their timetable and contact information for teachers.

There are some useful hints, tips and troubleshooting in the parent guide here, but if you need any extra help, please email the school office here.


Letters to parents and carers in 2023-24


Jennie Thomson our Head of School writes a weekly update which contains everything you need to know about what is happening for your child in UTC Reading.  We know it can be hard to keep up with school emails so we try only to send emails outside this weekly update if necessary.  Here you will find links to our end of week newsletters, and various other communications relevant to our whole school community:

GCSE study skills masterclass for parents


To help in the run-up to GCSE exam season for our Year 11 students, we asked Maximise Your Potential, a company specialising in study skills, to run a webinar to help parents support their children in the run up to and through the exams.

We know that not everyone could attend so wanted to share the headlines, key resources and main tips from Jeremy’s session.  We have run sessions with Jeremy many times in some of our schools and feedback from the students has always been very positive, so we hope you find this useful.

You can find the guide here
