Inverclyde Academy welcomes the involvement and support of parents.
The school regularly seeks the opinions of the parents through individual and group discussions, parental questionnaires and specific parental information evenings. Parents can certainly help support the school by emphasizing the importance of completing the homework set, good attendance, good time-keeping and the wearing of appropriate school dress.
We ask all of our parents to contact the school if their son/daughter is not going to be at school, whether due to illness or for a family reason.
