To create the best outcomes for young people and each other through support in a respectful, confidential and non-judgemental setting.
‘Supporting each other today for our Children’s tomorrow’
We have created a platform for parent’s voices to be heard, for parents to find out more about supporting their child’s learning, education opportunities for parents, encouraging parents as volunteers and improving communications between the school and the parents/community.
Parent Group runs on a Friday morning at 9.30am.
There is a calendar of events that we run each half term that is aimed at giving information to parents/carers about school, policies, curriculum etc. and other, more wellbeing inspired sessions as we realise and understand, that looking after our wellbeing is as important as it is for our learners.
Wellbeing sessions include ‘Chill and Chat’ sessions where parents and carers can get together, grab a cup of coffee or tea, have a chat, ask questions and get to know other with Miss Whittaker. Other Wellbeing sessions are sessions with guided meditation and reiki, to help and encourage us to relax. We are also introducing Parent Group Book Group this term to encourage, support and facilitate adult reading for pleasure which is one of aims in our school improvement plan. All of these sessions are safe places for parents/carers to come to take time out and relax, chat with others and learn new things.
Curriculum sessions include speaking to the Department Leads at Oakfield who can show their ‘Curriculum Maps’ within their department and answer any questions that may come up that parents/carers want to know. Sessions can be added and changed when needed, for example, information for parents and carers regarding GCSE’s and collection of results, attendance workshops, introduction to the School Improvement Plan, zones of regulation, what is the role of a pastoral manager and Year 9 Pathway Information.Parent Group Autumn 1 Calendar of Events 2023-24
