Parents' Voice

We are excited to present our Parents’ Voice for Oakwood Avenue Community Primary School. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with staff and share their views and opinions. As of this year 2018, Jane Coates, our Senior Assistant Head, has started a blog about the work of our Parents' Voice and this can be found at https://oakwoodavenueparentsvoice.wordpress.com/

The group, which began in March 2017, meets once every half term. The agenda for the first meeting was set by the Senior Leadership Team and School Council. Future agendas are then agreed by the Parents’ Voice. If you scroll further down, you can see the presentations and read what was discussed at each one.

The purpose of the Parents’ Voice 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’ Voice which will rely on consultation between parents, staff and governors.

What happens at the Parents’ Voice Meeting?

At each Parents’ Vocie 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’ Voice, 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.
