Information for Parents
It is our intention for parents of current students to be able to access any generic documents that have been sent home, either by email or via students.
To get your timetable and other key information for starting college you will need the MySCG app.
This platform will be a single place of information about the college for the new term and will also replace the student handbook. It is very important that you use the MySCG app as we will also use it to send important information to you during your time as a student at SCG.
Absences should be reported each day, preferably before 10am.
The college reports student absences from lessons via a text messaging system, which is designed to inform you if your son or daughter misses any college commitments. An automated text will be sent to your agreed mobile number after 1pm on any day where a commitment has been missed that morning and also 6pm when a commitment has been missed that afternoon (if we have not received contact from you before the lesson begins to explain the absence.)
You are welcome to contact the college, following receipt of a text, where routine information, e.g. which lesson/s your son or daughter was absent from, can be provided by the student's Personal Tutor.
Who should you contact?
If you have any concerns regarding your son/daughter’s progress at college, please contact their Progression Specialist (for students following vocational study programmes) or Student Support Tutor (for students following academic study programmes).
Emails from Shrewsbury Colleges Group and ProPortal
If the college is closed unexpectedly due to severe weather or any other incident, a notification will be made via Radio Shropshire, the college website, the college MYSCG app, ProPortal, Moodle and social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) if appropriate.
It is vital that the college has up-to-date contact details for the students and their primary contacts. If you have changed your address, telephone number, email address or mobile number please contact the college to inform us.
