Information evening praised by parents

Parents have sent Pool Academy’s Principal praise after the recent information evening left them ‘impressed’.

The event was held at the academy on the evening of the first day back to school. Its purpose was to update parents on plans teachers had for the year ahead. It was also a chance for the new teachers to introduce themselves and answer any questions parents might have.

Many people attended the evening and afterwards Claire Meakin, Pool Academy’s Principal, received praise both verbally and via email.

One parent commented: “It felt like I was attending a completely different school to the one my son has attended for the previous two years, and my wife felt equally impressed by the talks and the changes that are taking place. It feels like the school has had a major shakeup and rethink, and the emphasis on education and hard work has been put at the forefront.”

The parent added: “I would like to wish you and your team all the very best for the year ahead and hope it will be a great success.”

Miss Meakin said: “We are very proud of our plans in place to ensure students thrive in all areas across the academy.  It was wonderful to hear such encouraging and positive feedback.

“Whenever there is a strong partnership between home and school, we always see students making incredible progress in their lessons and becoming happy, healthy life-long learners.  

“We are so pleased to hear that members of the community are on board with the new vision for our school.

“We look forward to many exciting times ahead.”
