Thanks to everyone who contributed to the survey of parents’ views we carried out in October and November. We received over 200 responses and that’s fantastic rate for a survey of this type.
We have prepared a report looking at what parents have to say about the parent council and the school. The responses have been overwhelmingly positive and supportive of the school and the parent council. We will follow-up on potential areas for improvement in two ways:
- For areas related to the Parent Council, we will look at how we can change the way we work to address any issues raised.
- For areas related to the school, we will identify the themes that have emerged and provide supporting to the senior leadership team.
The report is available in our documents area.
Our AGM will take place on the 15th of November, this year starting a little earlier at 6:00pm. It’s a very relaxed evening where we will be serving refreshments and getting to know any new parents who come along.
This is the meeting where we appoint Parent Council office bearers and set our priorities for the coming year. It’s also the meeting where parents can join the parent Council, either by attending the meeting or by letting us know in advance by email. To be a member, you only need to be the parent or carer of a pupil at Trinity Academy.
- Would you like to be more involved in the life of the school?
- Would you like to help to support the school in its work with pupils?
- Would you like to help to promote contact between the school and parents, pupils and the wider community?
- Would you like to help to represent the views of parents at Trinity Academy?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then you may find it worthwhile to become a member of the Parent Council. You can note your interest by emailing us or by sending a note to us via the school office or you can just come along on the night.
If being a member of the Parent Council isn’t for you, you can still be involved. All parents and carers are very welcome at any of our meetings and can still take part in most of our activities.
Please consider whether you could help and please do get in touch.
During the 2017 open evening the school premiered a short movie to introduce families to the school. It was created by one of S5’s and is a great introduction to the school.
The school is running LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer) training for staff on the 23rd October to focus on inclusion and also as a step towards attaining our Rights Respecting School award. There are a small number of spaces available to parents who would be interested in taking part in the training.
The training will last for the morning. If you are interested in taking part please contact the Deputy Head, Miss Cook, directly.
At this week’s information evening for P7 families joining the school we provided those attending with a pamphlet with information from parents about the school. Our aim was to pass on helpful information from other parents at the start of a family’s journey through high school.
This booklet, written by parents for parents, aims to pass on helpful information at the start of your child’s journey through high school.
