Parent Voice

Parent Voice is a representative body for parents and carers in the Academy. The aims of the Parent Voice is to represent the views of all parents and carers and to contribute towards the Academy, securing the best learning opportunities for all our students.

The Chair and Secretary are elected annually at the second meeting of the Parent Voice of each academic year. Parental views are represented by the Parent Voice to the Academy Senior Leadership Team (SLT). There will be one meeting each half term. The dates for these meetings are published on our Calendar. All minutes from those meetings will be available at the bottom of this page.

Parents and carers can contact the Parent Voice by email: parentvoice@harrispurley.org.uk
 

Meeting Dates

Meetings are usually held on the first or second Tuesday of every month, starting at 18:30 and running until around 20:00. Please use the Parent filter on our Calendar page to view this year's meeting dates.
 

Terms of Reference

  • To work in partnership with the Academy to create a welcoming school that is inclusive for all parents and carers
  • To work with staff, governors, sponsors and other stakeholders to implement the vision of the Academy
  • Engage in a wide range of initiatives that promote the progress of the Academy and students within it
  • To achieve the widest possible levels of participation and engagement amongst parents and carers by promoting the work of the Parent Voice

 

Online Safety Information for Parents

The Academy regularly hosts Online Safety seminars and Prevent training.  Documents from these sessions can be found in our Information Pack below.  You can find more information about these topics in our Safeguarding section.

 

Parental Feedback 2015 - 2016

At every parent consultation evening throughout the year 2015 – 2016 the Academy seeks the views of parents and carers on how we are doing.  Questions range from the quality of teaching pupils receive, the progress pupils are making, how safe pupils feel as well as how well led the Academy is.  Any self-reflective organisation needs to evaluate how well it performs and needs to put in place steps to improve.  We are committed to continuous self-improvement.  Your feedback is important to us. 

Please see below a summary of your responses for the academic year 2015 – 2016.  Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaires and your support throughout the year.

Year 6 Transition Day 2016 (a.k.a. New Year 7 Induction Day 2016)

This is the PowerPoint which was presented at the Year 6 Transition Day 2016. You will also find the Year 7 Handbook (a guide for parents, carers and students) as well as the Summer Assignment booklet at the bottom of this webpage. The key to successful transition is effective communication.  I hope you find these resources helpful and informative in preparation for joining the Academy in September 2016.  Please don’t hesitate to contact particular members of staff if you have further questions.  All staff contact details and roles are detailed in the Contact section of the website

Christmas Jumper Day and the Parent Voice Christmas Raffle

On Tuesday 20th December, the Academy celebrated Christmas with a range of activities and events for students and staff throughout the day. 

For a £1 donation, students could wear a Christmas jumper under their blazers (this is in place of their Academy jumpers). Proceeds go to a charity decided by Student Voice. 

Parent Voice also held their Christmas Raffle in the afternoon.  Tickets for the raffle were priced at £1 per strip and proceeds went towards the Academy. Prizes were kindly donated by local businesses and included a laptop, trainers, cinema tickets, beauty treatments and gift vouchers for a variety of high street stores.

This all coincides with Chartwells' Christmas Dinner, which was a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. The Christmas Dinner costs £2.90 for all staff and students who are not on Free School Meals.

We look forward to an exciting and festive end of term!
