Parent Forums

Parent Forums

Dear Parents and Carers,

Following on from the positive response to the first Parent forum last term, I would like to notify you of dates for the termly Parent Forum’s this academic year:

10th October 2019, 27th February 2020, 4th June 2020. All meetings will start at 6pm in the canteen and run for 1 hour.

As before, it will provide a forum for us to discuss ways to provide the best outcomes for all our young people, as both the school and parents have a shared responsibility for this.

To confirm, it will NOT be an opportunity for me to discuss individual students with their parents/carers, as this should be done in the first instance with tutors, subject teachers, pastoral or progress leads, as the need indicates.

Please email me directly to indicate your attendance, so that I can judge numbers and therefore select the most appropriate venue.

I hope you will take this in the spirit in which it is being offered- as an opportunity to involve parents more directly. Some suggested topics for discussion that particularly interest me and would be a good starting point to achieve our aims: 1) Progress with the information to parents on the school website 2) use of SIMs Parent App for home learning etc

Of course, you may have areas you wish to discuss as well. If you are willing to email these to the above email address in advance I will be sure to include them on the agenda.

Many thanks in advance

Kathy Janzan
Head of School
