The Parent Partnership is a meeting between parents and senior members of staff which is hosted every term. The meetings bring together parents from all year groups. The meeting’s aim to give parents the opportunity to help discuss school issues and shape policy, take part in discussions about proposed developments and hear about the work of departments and teams across the school. The meetings tend to be loosely based around a ‘theme’ such as ‘Enrichment’, ‘Keeping Young People Safe On-Line’ or ‘How to support with homework’. They are informal meetings, simply allowing parents an opportunity to develop their understanding about how the school operates; parents are encouraged to bring ideas and suggest topics for discussion.
