The Academy has been informed that the company who provide our school text service have changed Appleton's contact number.  The old number: 07860 002489 has been changed to: 07860 095503.

Please delete the old number from planners and any correspondence you have that has the number listed on it.  Please also delete the old number from your messages and contacts in your phone.

With immediate effect, if you text the old number i.e. to inform us of student absence, we will not receive this message and may attempt to contact you to discuss why your child is not in school, even if you think you have already informed us of the reason.

Please ensure that you begin using the new number immediately.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.  This change has been made without consulting the Academy by the company providing this service.
