Working with Parents

The Brian Clarke Church of England Academy works closely with parents, as partners in their children’s education and development, in the following ways: 

  • By enabling parents to access information about their child’s learning, attendance and behaviour online through the My Child At School app. 
  • By sharing the essential learning through curriculum overviews for each subject. 
  • By providing continuity of key personnel: form tutors, senior pastoral officers and year heads who take their year group from Year 7 through to Year 11, so that parents know who to contact and supportive relationships on behalf of our young people can be developed. 
  • By formally reporting 3 times a year including a face-to-face meeting with their child’s form tutor and subject teachers 
  • By celebrating young people’s achievements in learning and in their personal development through social media channels and the half termly school newsletter. 
  • By making the school and its resources where possible available to the community that we serve and providing services for parents that will help them support their children 
  • By holding regular parent forums and feeding back to parents: “You said – we did”.
