At Ernest Bevin College we recognise the importance of working with parents and carers to ensure the very best for all pupils in the college. Parent Forum is an opportunity for parents to ask questions or raise concerns with a senior member of staff. In 2019-20 the format of these meetings changed slightly in that parents now have the opportunity to ask questions about their son on an individual basis. When appropriate a member of staff may give the group a presentation to update parents on a particular topic such as reports, online homework etc. Parents will be informed of these presentations in advance.

We discussed the upcoming whole school Assessment Week and there was a short presentation about supporting your child with revision. We also discussed Governors’ aims for the college to be more inclusive and setting up a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to help strengthen the community.
All Parents/Carers are welcome but meetings are geared to those parents with boys new to the school, in particular those in Year 7 and 8. A member of staff will usually give a short presentation and we allow time for questions and discussion.
These mornings are to help parents’ understand how the college works. Generally we are not able to discuss your son on an individual basis and if you have concerns you should contact your son’s tutor or Head of Year for a private meeting.
Please come to reception and sign in from 9am.
Refreshments are provided
