Our parent voice is taken seriously and plays part in how we shape our school as a whole, from policy and procedure to ethos and curriculum. Our parent steering group, workshop feedback, questionnaires and on-the-door discussions are all ways that our parents' voices are heard and actioned on. Below are some of the key issues raised and how they have been actioned.
Parent Workshops - You asked for more opportunities to come into school
Each year group now runs at least 2 curriculum workshops throughout as well as the annual Welcome & Meet the teacher meetings which were very well attended this year and will be run again in 2023-24
Coffee Mornings - You asked for more informal gatherings for parents in school
We will now run additional Meet and Greet coffee mornings where parents can come and talk with SLT on any subject or just come to meet other parents. Our next coffee morning will of course be Mcmillan Coffee Morning so look out for that date in the news letter!
Online Booking - You asked for better systems for booking parents' evenings and clubs
We have invested in an online system to support this for parents. The feedback has been very positive so far!
Parents Evenings - In our Post-COVID Questionaire some parents asked to keep online parents' evening
We have now moved to a choice of Face to Face meetings or Telephone meetings. This has proved very sucessfull over this last year and we will be offering this again for the upcoming years.
