Parent Partnership Policy
At Marjorie McClure Specialist School we strive to develop a close and supportive relationship with parents/ carers that encourages all pupils to achieve their best. We believe that a strong home/school partnership is the key to children’s positive emotional development, progress and growth as part of the community.
The aims of our Parent Partnership policy:
Parents are welcomed into the school to learn more about their children’s progress and to celebrate their successes. There are numerous opportunities throughout the year (both formal and informal) to meet together and get to know each other. Meetings are arranged at a variety of times to enable as many parents as possible to attend.
We welcome the involvement of parents/carers through the following activities and events:
We are continually updating and improving our communication systems. Currently, parents/carers receive regular updates from the school including:

We encourage parents to support their children’s learning at home in a variety of ways, including:
The school will regularly seek parental/carer views on a range of topics affecting pupils’ education through questionnaires, surveys and verbal discussion. Feedback is valued, and responses are seriously considered and appropriate action taken.
The school values its parent governors and the support they give to the school. Parent governors represent the views of parents and communicate ideas, issues and concerns to the governing body at their regular meetings. Each parent governor is elected by parents for a term of 4 years.
The governing body meets every half term in the evening. All governors are also members of one or more focus groups covering Achievement, Leadership, Partnerships, Finance /Management/ Health and safety, Staff development.
Any concerns or issues can be raised by parents to the Chair of governors via the school.
We seek to ensure that all relevant school policies are effective and easy to read. Our policies are available on our website www.marjoriemcclure.org.uk
The school follows and supports the rigorous multi agency safeguarding policy and procedures agreed by Bromley local authority. The school ensures that all staff are fully trained and follow best practice at all times. The school is a secure site with all visitors having to report to the reception office. Parents are visitors are very welcome in school but are not allowed to move around the site unsupervised.
Marjorie McClure Specialist School is committed to the highest possible level of partnership with parents and we are always open to new suggestions on how we can improve.
This policy was agreed after consultation with staff, governors, pupils and parents in September 2013.
