Parent advocates are parent/carer volunteers from each year group who meet each half term. They act as a direct link between home and school by finding out more about how lessons are taught, how the curriculum is developed and what a typical school day is like for every child. The process is two-way, the parent advocates bring valuable information from a parental perspective and the parents advocates gain valuable information about school life.
- To optimise the contributions of parents as partners in learning
- For parents to gain a deeper understanding of how our curriculum is taught to be able to support their child at home
- To obtain critical feedback as a way to improve relationships between school and home and vice versa.
