Virtual Parent Voice Forum – Thursday 15 October 2020, 6pm-7pm

I am pleased to invite all parents/carers of students attending Wilmington Academy to the first informal ‘Virtual Parent Voice’ meeting of the new academic year. The virtual meeting will be set up using the Google Meet platform.  

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at Wilmington Academy. The Parent Voice sessions aims to represent the views of all parents/carers and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. It facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors. The forum works to provide feedback on provision, offer a parent’s/carer’s perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.

The Parent Voice sessions are not a place to address specific concerns about an individual child or issues relating to individual members of staff.  Parents/carers who need to discuss these issues should approach their class teacher or Head of College.

Main Aims

  • To support and promote children’s learning.
  • To help the school find out what parents and carers think about important issues.
  • To involve parents and carers actively in school decisions.
  • To make plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children.
