Parent Council

Cedars Academy values the unique contribution and support of all our parents and carers.
An initial meeting to facilitate the formation of a Parent Council on 16th June 2016 was attended by:
  • Gary York 
  • Dawn York 
  • Sharon Westlake 
  • Kath Hayward 
  • Catherine Brown 
  • Jeanette Harbottle 
  • Jennifer Scott 
  • Paul Hills 
  • Stuart Kay 
  • Syed Emanul Islam
The Parent Council has 3 Principle Aims:
  • Improving communication between parents/carers and other parent/carers as well as between parents and school
  • To provide a 'confidential forum' for parents and carers to raise concerns, issues and suggestions for improvement relating to school life
  • To act as a 'Critical Friend' of the school, to work in liaison with the Leadership Group and to report regularly on our progress to the School Governors


If you would like more information about the Cedars Parent Council or want to raise an issue for discussion at our next meeting please get in touch with us.

Parent Questionnaire

One of the ways that the Parent Council and school leadership use to find out what parents and carers think of how we are doing is by using an annual questionnaire.

A summary of parents’ and carers’ views as a whole will be used to help the Parent Council and school leadership plan improvements to how the Academy works with students and parents.

We usually ask for responses to the questionnaire during Spring Term.

The responses to the most recent questionnaire can be found below:

If you would like to complete a parent questionnaire either download below or pick up a copy from the school office and return to school via the Parent Council Suggestion Box (next to the main office). 
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. Click on the link below:
