We had a Parent Council Meeting tonight.
There was a real positivity in the air and the committee members are very keen to find ways to get even more involved in the work of the school. We really want parents to be involved in their children’s education, we all know it leads to better outcomes for children when we all work together.
These are the minutes of the last meeting, held in November.
The Head Teacher’s Report for tonight’s meeting is attached.

We are currently evaluating our School Improvement Plan and beginning to plan for next session. From each priority I have indicated the desired outcomes for your child/ren.
Looking at these questions can you please add comments on the posts below, indicating – What is going well? and What can we improve?
If you’d like your comments to be anonymous you can comment on the boards at school or put your thoughts on paper and leave at the office. No Judgements here! We really appreciate the time you take to support us with this important part of school life.
Your contributions will go towards our evaluation and improvement plan for next year.
Thank you for your continued support – we truly value your involvement in the school!
It is hoped that it continues to promote:
- Children working together to maximise their own and each others’ learning
- Higher achievement through collaboration instead of competition
- Improved social skills, self esteem and a positive attitude to learning
