Each year group has a representative on the parent council: a parent who discusses concerns and issues with the parents in that year group and brings them to a meeting with the headteacher once a term.
The headteacher is keen to listen to parents' views and to discuss their ideas openly. During the discussions, she is able to explain why school decisions have been made and to allay parents' concerns. Equally, changes to the way we do things are made at these meetings, for example in the detail of how we organise lunch times.
We all know that a school where people discuss their concerns freely and work together to address them is a more effective school. Thank you to the Parent Council representatives for your dedication to making Brize Norton School as good as it can be.
