Parent Board

We are excited to announce that we will be starting a Parents’ Board for Oakwood Avenue Community Primary School. This will be an opportunity for parents to meet with staff and share their views and opinions. The board will meet once every half term. The agenda for the first meeting will be set by the Senior Leadership Team and School Council. Future agendas are to be agreed by the Parents’ Board.

The purpose of the Parents’ Board is to be involved in leadership decisions in teaching and learning at Oakwood Avenue concerning agreed areas for development, which will ultimately lead to better outcomes for all children.  We value collaboration with parents and we appreciate your considered response.

There will be a specific protocol for the Parents’ Board which will rely on consultation between parents, staff and governors.

What happens at the Parents’ Board?

At each Parents’ Board there will be:

  • Agreed agenda
  • Proposals to consider.
  • Feedback from staff and children regarding proposals.
  • Parents’ Board discussions and suggestions given.
  • Parents have opportunity to vote on preferred proposals.
  • Governors for ratification.
  • Agreed action.
  • Implementation of action.
  • Review of action in following meetings.

We are looking for parent representatives from all year groups who could commit to the half termly meetings and be prepared to work with the school council, staff and governors to make our school the best it can be for our children.

If you are interested in being involved, there are a number of ways you can let me know. You can either complete the slip overleaf and return it to your child’s class teacher, leave your details at the office or alternatively, contact me via email on j.coates@oakwoodavenue.co.uk.  If you have any questions about the Parents’ Board, I am on the door of the KS2 building most mornings or you can email me on the address given. I l.ook forward to hearing from you.
