Parents and carers meet to learn about student support

Parents and Carers met for the first time this term to learn about how the school supports students.

The topic of the meeting was titled ‘Meet the Leadership Team’. This gave parents the opportunity to hear how each member of the team worked to help support students’ achievements and engagement.

Other items during the evening included Citizenship and Safeguarding.

Mr McKenzie, Head of Science and Assistant Principal, said he was delighted to welcome so many people to the meeting.

He said: "I am really excited to be working with our Parents and Carers Forum this year. We already have a strong number of parents but we would always love to see new faces too."

Steve Eathorne, member of PCF and Parent Governor, said: “I attended my first PCF meeting and really appreciated the Leadership Team taking the time to introduce themselves at the start of the new academic year.  

“It was friendly and informative and this helps reinforce the school’s aim to enable the parents to be inclusive while their children attend Pool Academy.”

The next meeting will be held on November 21.
