Parent Council

Cedars Academy Parent Council

Welcome to the Cedars Parent Council which is a forum of parents and carers that started in September 2016. All parents and carers are welcome to attend the Parent Council meetings and become elected members. This is your chance to get involved in your child’s school life and share your views so please come along to our drop-in meetings!

Our 3 principal aims are:

-          To improve communication between parents and carers, school staff and governors;

-          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 by working closely with the Leadership Group and                  reporting regularly on our progress to the School Governors.

The Parent Council can report several achievements to date including the new primary uniform,  the new academic school calendar, fundraising events, improvements to transport safety and home/school communication.         

Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month (during term-time) in the School Lodge on a drop-in basis and school provides childcare and refreshments for all parents/carers who attend. 



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:
