There are a number of different ways that you can support the school through volunteering. We run training sessions so that parents can come in on a regular basis to hear readers; you could come in and offer a special skill or talent that you have eg. science and share this with a class or you might want to help keep our library in the best possible condition. If you would be interested in volunteering in any way, please ask at the office for more details and who to speak to.
Parent Focus Group
One of the many ways that our school keep the lines of communication open with the parent body is through our termly parent focus group meeting. Our Parent Focus Group is made up of a representative from each class who meet with the Mrs Clements during the second half term of each term to discuss current issues and resolutions as well as celebrate the things within school that are working well.
Together they look at the things that, from a parent perspective, are going well and things that could be improved, better communicated or they would find useful knowing more about. This is a very good opportunity for open dialogue and we have had many successes from these meetings.
After the meeting, each representative will then feedback to individual cohorts about items raised and any whole school points will be communicated through the school newsletter.
Our parent representatives are:
|Nursery: VACANT||Year 1: Georgina Shaugnessy||Year 3: Claire Spake|
|Reception: Victoria Esteves||
Year 2: VACANT
|Year 4: VACANT|
|Year 5: Julie Bingham|
|Year 6: Esther Riche|
Julie Bingham has taken on the role of leading the Parent Focus Group, so any questions about the role or responsibilities plus time commitments, please do speak to her.
We hold our Focus Group meetings with the headteacher. It's a really useful way of passing on information and building links between parents and teachers whilst communicating positives and also possible improvements to our school. If a vacancy is available in your year group please consider joining our friendly team. Julie Bingham
Our next Parent Focus Group meeting will be held on: Awaiting date to be confirmed
Our wonderful class representatives are the class teacher's first point of call when needing to ask a question and vice versa. They also do an amazing job of organising the class cake sales and the class then decide how the money raised is spent on their classroom.
