Parent Voice

Parent Voice

Dear Parents & Carers

Parent Voice is run independently of the school by a Governor. The aim is to provide a forum for you to express your views to the governors without a member of the school staff being present. Our meetings are friendly and informal, and provide ample refreshments.

Meetings are held on an ad-hoc basis, when issues become apparent via feedback from parents or the school.

Meetings in the past have included items such as ‘The New Behaviour Policy’, our ‘Homework and Independent Learning Policy’ and ‘Joining the Leigh Academies Trust’.

We also run successful and very well attended courses for parents. Past topics have included ‘Funding University Courses’, ‘Help with Revision and Homework’, ‘e-Safety and Social Media’ and ‘Drugs Education’.

You can make a big difference to your child’s education by having your say in the progress and development of Mascalls. To help make this as easy as possible, we have ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’ feeds, and you can also liaise with Rachel Hirst (our School Marketing & Admissions Manager) by emailing rachel.hirst@mascallsacademy.org.uk.

I would welcome any suggestions for future meetings, and will be arranging a new set of courses sometime after the Christmas holidays. In the meantime, I wish you even greater success at Mascalls, as we benefit from being a member of Leigh Academies Trust.

With Best Wishes

Ray Bradley (Governor and Chair of Parent Voice)
