Working together in


We want parents to feel involved in their child’s

education and in the life of the school. We welcome

parental participation and feedback and hope that

we can build a successful partnership to support

every child.

Wework hard to ensurewe communicate effectively

with parents. During the year parents will have the

opportunity to attend a parent consultation evening

and review day to discuss their child’s progress.

They will receive termly progress reports showing

the grade their child is currently ‘working at’, along

with a target and effort grade and attendance

information. Students’ progress is monitored

closely by tutors and other staff. Students in danger

of under-achieving are interviewed and supported.

In order to keep parents up to date with what is

happening at school, we frequently send home

newsletters, e-mails and messages. In addition,

we meet regularly with parents at our “Parents’

Forum”. These open meetings give parents a

chance to discuss school life and contribute

their ideas for improvement. We have a thriving

PTA which supports the school in many ways,

particularly through raising money to support

student enrichment events.

“Our daughter made excellent progress during her five years in the happy

and positive environment at Murray Park School. The staff helped her

to recognise her full potential and always made themselves available

when she needed help.”

Careers information, advice and guidance

Our commitment to the young people in our care

extends beyond Year 11. We work alongside local

colleges and sixth forms to ensure a smooth

transition. When they leave us at 16 they have had

the best possible preparation for the challenges

they will face in the future.

Our Raising Aspirations Co-ordinators work closely

with students to provide them with the advice they

require. Students are given individual help at each

stage, from choosing their subjects in Year 9 to

post-school destinations.

‘Information, advice and

guidance students receive is well

coordinated and valuable. A good

range of activities, including

work experience, are arranged to

help students plan for the future’
