PARENT COUNCIL MEETING - TUESDAY 10 MAY 2011
AREAS OF DISCUSSION
Nancy Robinson welcomed everyone and explained that the Parent Council was a forum
for discussion of all areas of work across the Academy. Five parents attended.
1. Feedback from new Academy
Many positive comments
Good press coverage
Excellent feedback on uniform
Ms Robinson explained about the 3 new colleges
2. Questions from parents concerning the Education Data System (EDS) where parents
can view the progress of their children on-line. This is only available for Year 7
students currently. Ms Robinson explained that a new system for everyone should
be available by September 2011.
3. There was considerable discussion about marketing the academy. Parents felt it was
important to emphasise to parents in the Primary schools that the model was a
structured one. Ms Robinson said we would concentrate on discussing this in more
detail in the next meeting.
