Parental engagement is required in two ways. Firstly to ensure that students’ attendance, dress, attitudes for learning and preparation are of a high standard. Secondly, taking an active role in supporting student’s learning and their choices of learning pathways.
The school also expects parents to take an active role in the life of the school, contributing to activities and events as appropriate to the time and skills that they are able to offer.
The school is constantly seeking to extend and strengthen partnerships between the school and the wider community. Professional volunteers are encouraged to work within the school, participating in lessons and supporting the enrichment programme. Strong links are being developed with the local business and banking sector to provide fundraising, work placements and internships.
The school facilities in the main site will be available for use by the community for a wide range of activities such as adult learning, National Childbirth Trust, sports and fitness, Scouts, STEM for local schools, music activities and local residents groups.
