Parents as partners
At Clifton High School we firmly believe that parents and the school should work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and partnership to support the development and learning of each child.
We respect the role of parents in their child's education and welcome opportunities to discuss each child's development and any concerns with parents. Parents are made to feel welcome and valued and are kept fully informed about their child's progress and the life of the school in general.
Parents are welcomed to regular parent/teacher conferences, welcome evenings and staff/parent socials.
Reports on a child's development are sent out each term and parents are encouraged to make an appointment to see their child's teacher should they require additional time to discuss any aspect of their child. Teachers will not hesitate to contact parents if they feel a meeting would be beneficial; good communication between the school and parents is considered to be of great importance.
Our thriving Parents' Association contributes much to the life of the school, organising and running a variety of social and fund-raising events and overseeing our system of parent class representatives. (Please click here for a list).
