How are parents involved in the setting? How can I be involved?

  • We believe in building strong partnerships with parents and welcome parents to participate in school life.
  • The Park Hall website contains information about our academy and acts as platform for parents to find out more about our academy. The curriculum overview, information and individual year group plans are available on the school website to ensure all parents are aware of their child’s current learning alongside supporting resources.
  • Our newsletters, assemblies, parent workshops and information provided on the website all contribute to ensuring that parents are fully involved in their child’s learning journey.
  • We utilise social media platforms (Twitter and Facebook) to share and involve parents with their child’s learning journey as research with parents demonstrated that this type of communication was what was preferable to parents. Parents are able to post to the sites and share and be involved on an ongoing basis.
  • It is vital that parents support their child’s learning journey through daily reading and a wide variety of homework activities.
  • Parents attend termly consultation meetings with their child’s class teacher to review their child’s progress and Pupil Passport Targets.
  • There are opportunities provided throughout the year which allow parents to work alongside their children on projects within the classroom environment and parents are invited to learning workshops.
  • The Senior Leadership Team may also gather parent views through parent questionnaires throughout the year and through Gold Book comments at events.
  • We have a Park Hall Family Association of which all parents are invited, and encouraged, to become active members of. The PHF group assist in hosting a range of events for pupils throughout the school calendar including discos, youth clubs, film shows, year 6 leaver’s prom etc.
  • Our Local Governing Committee has parent representatives who actively seek the views of other parents
