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. Our next meeting is on Tuesday 10th October at 2.30pm so please come along and get involved!
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.

You can also leave a note for us in the Parent Council Suggestion Box at the school reception (this can be anonymised if preferred).
Many thanks for your continued support.
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:
