Dear Parents/Carers

It is important for the school to be able to have opportunities to talk with parents and carers about events and to celebrate some of the wonderful achievements of our students.  It is equally important for school leaders to be able to receive suggestions and feedback from yourselves.

I would like to set up a Parents Advisory Council that will meet every term in order to discuss and offer feedback to improve communication around events and updates in protocol within the school.

In addition to these functions, I would envisage that together we might be able to consider the capacity to develop a community events/fundraising team.  This would be run jointly by the students, a staff representative, and parents who would emanate from the Parents Advisory Council.

Ideally, I am looking for a group of twenty (maximum) parents/carers to join the group so that we can get started with this exciting new initiative.

There are no qualifications or stipulations required to be part of the group.  It would be good to have a cross-section of our children’s parents/carers.  Parent/carer representatives from different student year groups with diverse occupations and who may have had prior experience in terms of being involved with PTA’s, fundraising, or social events and equally, those who would like to contribute actively for the first time.

If you are interested, please complete this form by Friday 23 October 2020.

Yours sincerely

J Arnold
