Parent Community Group

As well as an Academy Improvement Board, all Beacon Education schools have a formal Parent and Community Advisory Group called the Parnet and Community Group, with elected representatives and co-opted parents. 


These meetings ensure the parent voice is captured and allow focus on areas of importance to the parent community, balanced with school priorities.


The meetings are chaired by the Headteacher. 


The Parent Community Group is made up as follows:
