Parent's Advisory Group

Introduction

The Academy has established an Advisory Group which is a body to provide advice, information and support to the Head and Governors. This assistance will enable the Academy to implement its aims and objectives effectively.

What matters most at the Academy is the quality of education available to the young people it serves. It naturally follows, therefore, that all who are able to improve this, such as teachers, students, parents, industrialists and community personnel, should be afforded the opportunity to contribute in a coordinated and effectively managed way. The Advisory Group will be one of the mechanisms in place which helps secure continued improvement.

Additionally, the opportunity of involving members of the Academy and the wider community fits well with the ethos of the school.

The Advisory Group will provide a forum for involving the wider community. Therefore the Head will, where necessary, co-opt members of the local community to the Group to assist in its work.
