Parent Council

We held our first parent council meeting of the year on Tuesday 28th January 2020.  Thank you to the following parents who attended the meeting:

  • Arif Qadir (3)

  • Holly Strotan (1)
  • Sandeep Kaur Randhawa (4)
  • Sheena Heeley (6)

If you would like anything discussing at parent council, please use one of the following:

Our parent council works in partnership with the school and the Governing Body to support the strategic direction of the school. It has an advisory and consultative role where ideas can be suggested by parents and put forward to the Governing Body to consult on.

The ideas themselves will come from you as parents or from the leadership team.   Please note this is not about individual pupils, classes or members of staff, this is for issues of a general nature.

Research has shown that children do better when their parents are involved in their education and indicates that parental involvement is a key lever for school improvement.

There are 2 main strands to parental involvement:

• Parental involvement in their child’s learning

• Parental involvement in the life of the school

Most research evidence is about parental involvement in children’s learning. Not much research has been carried out into parental involvement in school life and school decision-making.

If you are interested in making a difference to school life and believe you have the drive to support the school and its future, please join the Parent Council . The minimum time commitment would be 2 hours every term up to July in the first instance. The meetings are held on Tuesday mornings between 9-11am. 

  • The group has a formal constitution and members of the council will have specific roles and responsibilities.
  • There is a maximum of 15 members on the council.

The parent council will be reaching out to all parents to ask for support. You may have specific skills or interests that could be used in school to support the children’s education. If you don’t want to be part of the parent council but would be willing to share these skills we would love to hear from you too
