Ms George says: "I can read Margaret Atwood’s writing time and time again. One of the reasons I wanted to study Literature at A-Level is so I could explore The Handmaid’s Tale and I’m so glad I did! Her writing is absorbing and still (sadly) politically relevant https://t.co/lD4IR8V5sw

Parent Voice is entirely parent-led and meets regularly with senior staff from the Academy to discuss issues relating to student welfare, the curriculum, or the academy’s future development. It’s a chance for parents to have a dialogue with senior Academy staff, to ask questions and raise concerns.

Parents set the agenda for the meeting, with senior staff being asked to attend to provide information and respond to comments. Parent governors also attend, along with PC Marcus Kudliskis, Safer Schools Police Officer.

The forum does not discuss issues relating to individual children or teachers, which can be raised through other channels. Rather, the forum looks at school-wide issues that affect all students and are therefore relevant to all parents.


Topics discussed

Topics discussed in recent meetings include:

Lunch time arrangements
Staff and parents were concerned that children were not having long enough to eat their lunch, and the arrangements were changed as a result.

The library
Parents wanted to know how the school was encouraging boys to become more engaged in reading and how parents could support this.

E-safety
How does the academy promote safety online, and what advice can the school provide for parents?

Home study and exam preparation skills
How is the Academy approaching this and what do parents need to do?

Transition arrangements
What is the Academy doing to help students make the transition to sixth for

Social events
Parent Voice also organises social events and supports other events organised by the Academy to help the school become a valued member of the local community. If you would like to get involved in organising social events we’d love to hear from you.
