2011/2012 Autumn Term
7 parents attended the meeting on 4th October 2011 which was chaired by
Mrs Denning, a parent governor. Mrs Dimmock, Vice Chair of Governors, was
also present. Ms Gavaghan (Deputy Head Teacher) and Mr Poole (Assistant
Head Teacher) represented the school.
The Group discussed a wide range of topics. Feedback from parents on the
Communications Document and the weekly maildrop was very positive. There
was also a very useful discussion on Annual Reports and Tracking Data. The
group also discussed Academy Status, Examination Results, Attendance and
Behaviour Policy amendments as well as laptops in the Sixth Form.
Under “Any other Business” the following issues were raised:
- Quality of uniform supplied from the different outfitters
- Prize Giving evenings.
All of the above issues will be considered by the School’s Leadership Team and
by the relevant Governors’ committees.
The next meeting of the Parents’ Link Group will be held on Tuesday 31st
January 2012 at 7.30pm in the School Hall. There is no formal membership of
the group and all parents/carers are welcome.
