Parent Partnership Group

Welcome to our Parent Partnership Group page.
Our next meeting will be taking place on WEDNESDAY 7th December 2022 9am- 10am with Mrs Lihou, Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager and Miss Baker, Deputy Head teacher. 

 

 

Dear Parents,

Following on from last year’s success of the Parent Partnership group, we will be running a series of meetings across this academic year. The aim of these group meetings is to help us further develop the links between school and home through shared discussion, feedback and suggestions linked to our School Impact Plan. 

The Parent Partnership meetings will take place once a large term and will have a set agenda. They will be held by different members of the school community. We will be looking at a range of projects that we have running in school, and asking for your input and feedback on them. The intention for these meetings is to have a positive impact on school development.

You will be informed of the next Parent Partnership meeting via SchoolComms. If you are interested in being involved in these Parent Partnership meetings, please email Mrs Caplan in the school office directly (ccaplan@discovery.kent.sch.uk) to confirm your attendance. We are all really looking forward to working alongside you all.

 

Parent Partnership Meeting - 7/12/22

Many thanks to all those who attended the Parent Partnership Meeting last term.  The focus for this meeting was on supporting children's wellbeing at school and at home.  Mrs Lihou - our school Family Liaison Officer and Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager - shared the strategies and support that the School put in place for children.  To find out more about these please visit this page on our website: https://www.discovery.kent.sch.uk/curriculum/social-emotional-and-mental-health-and-wellbeing/

There was lots of positive feedback throughout the meeting.  After Mrs Lihou's presentation, parents felt that the School does a lot to support children's wellbeing which should be shared more widely with the school community.  Following this, suggestions were made - some of which the School has already actioned.  For example, there is now a regular section of Miss Gobell's newsletter devoted to sharing wellbeing strategies that parents can implement at home.  Also, Mrs Lihou will be sharing some of the resources that we use in school so parents can have a shared approach to supporting children at home.  

The Parent Partnership also suggested ideas for the next meeting coming up in term 3 - watch this space to find out!
