September 2019 Update

So the new school year is off and running as is the Parent Council. Delighted to see so many new faces at our AGM and first public meeting of the year.

You’ll see all our year group representatives via our Meet the Parent Council page.

Key priorities for htis year include seeing progress within the school library to offer a better mix of use and open access at key times for pupils.

The PC will be representing parents on a number of working groups including the communication group, as well as our contributions towards the school improvement plan.

The PC are pleased to see the recent changes in visitor policy and the installation of a new window at the school reception. Its great news that parents are given a warm first point of contact welcome when arriving at HA. However more importantly that security is not compromised by visitor access to pupils areas without authority.

The new Homework Policy provides a framework for teachers, parents and pupils with clear use of Show My Homework and google classroom. We hope to see the further rollout of this key monitoring tool that helps parents see pupil engagement and progress with work completed at home.

The school insight data, which is the record of how well the school is performing in terms of exam rates, will be visited at our next public meeting with the Headteacher providing context.

The Parent Council will have a stall with reps in attendance at all Parents Evenings so please pop over and stop for a chat to find out more about the PC and its work or provide feedback on what else you’dl like to see progressed at HA. Or if you’d just like to get some support to download apps or have a general query please don’t hesitate to ask.

Next PC Meeting: 4th Nov- 7pm – School Library.

Best Wishes, Donna Hicks – PC Chair
