Parental Information

Knowing and understanding how our school works is an essential part of the support that you can offer to your child to help them to thrive; regular communication is a key feature of the successful partnerships that we aim to foster. We hope that our website will guide you to a range of information but please also use the Parent Handbook as a useful reference point to clarify specific details:

Year 7 Parents Handbook

Year 8 – 11 Parents Handbook

Sixth Form Parents Handbook

If you have any questions, no matter how minor they may seem, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us here at The Nottingham Emmanuel School.

Please find below useful information:


ParentMail is the service we use to communicate with parents and families.

  • Receive messages in the normal way via text or email.
  • Use a free mobile app on Android and iOS to pick up school messages instantly.
  • Have an account simply for school messages (away from your busy email inbox!)
  • Connect to other schools, nurseries or clubs that use ParentMail.
  • Highlight important messages or archive old messages to make life easier.
  • Messages can be sent directly to mums, dads and carers – even grandparents!

Registering with ParentMail is very easy! If you haven’t yet registered, please contact Student Services on 0115 977 5380, option 2 for the registration link.

Once registered, if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, we would highly recommend you download the ParentMail App for the best user experience. To do this, simply search for “ParentMail in your App store.


ParentPay is our e-payment method that should be used to pay for all trips and uniform and to top up your child’s lunch account. Lunch accounts can also be topped up by students with cash using the credit machines in the Dining Hall. We use ParentPay to make payments easier and to remove the need for students to carry large amounts of cash. On joining us, all parents will be issued with a ParentPay registration code. If you require additional copies of this, please contact Student Services on 0115 9775380 option 2.

If you cannot make online payments please notify Student Services when there is an item that you would like to make a payment for and we can provide you with a PayPoint letter. This letter will have a unique barcode that, using PayPoint, will allow you to use cash to pay at a local shop without the worry of students bringing cash into the Academy.
