Committee Meeting

9th October

If you’d like to get involved and help fundraise for your children’s school then please come along. There are refreshments (even cake sometimes), and if you can only come for part of the meeting, or you need to leave early due to childcare provisions that is absolutely fine. We are also flexible in terms of what commitment you can offer. Once you attend a meeting don’t think you are then expected to attend all others and help at all of our events. We welcome any amount of time or resource. All parents, carers, friends, relatives, residents are welcome!

If you cannot attend a meeting but would like to help us at events, through our ‘How You Can Help’ initiatives or you have an idea you’d like us to help you facilitate then please get in touch.

When parents are involved in their child’s education, children do better on a wide range of measures.
These positive effects include:
• Better behaviour
• More confidence and greater self-esteem
• Higher attendance rates
• A lower risk of exclusion
• More enthusiasm about learning
• Better results.

In fact, John Hattie’s seminal 2008 study, Visible Learning: A Synthesis of Over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement found that “the effect of parental engagement over a student’s school career is equivalent to adding two or three years to that student’s education”.
