Parent Wellbeing

Information for Parents & Carers

As part of our Whole School Approach, it is essential that we continue to engage with parents, carers & the local community. We want to empower our community to voice their ideas & opinions. Such engagement has been shown to improve not only a child's wellbeing but also their academic success. Our PCS Parent & Carer Forum, Parent Voice is the key to keeping such communication open & fluid. We meet once a term from 5:00pm - 6:00pm. On the following dates:

Wednesday 27th September
Wednesday 29th November
Wednesday 7th February
Wednesday 24th April
Wednesday 26th June

There is no obligation for a regular commitment, however we do ask that you contact prior to the evening if you would like to attend.

We would also like to direct you towards the staff in school who can provide information, guidance and support for you and your child depending on their year group.
