Our relationship with parents is central to the success of our students, and the academy as a whole. We welcome opportunities to work in partnership with you and your family, so that your child gets the most out of their time at Ark Boulton Academy.
We offer a drop in coffee morning for parents to meet with senior leaders in the academy on Fridays at 9-10am, on MS Teams.
If you would like to share your views or have a concern relating to your child, please fill in this form so that you can be added to a meeting on MS Teams, by your email address.
You will receive an email invite with a link to the group meeting.
If you prefer to speak to us with a confidential matter about your child, please email your child's year group support email instead:
We have organised a range of workshops and parental drop-in sessions for networking, support and offering practical advice, to build relationships between the parent community and Ark Boulton Academy.
Some of the sessions will be based on the following topics:
|Identifying our own teenage experiences||For parents to reflect on their own experiences as teenagers and envoke compassion and understanding in order to deal with thier own teenagers.|
|Adolescence||To help parents understand that adolescence is a time of transition and change and that adolescents have particular needs.|
|Identifying our parenting style||The role and responsibilities of a parent to include provisions for daily life as well as love, care, support and discipline, what parents need to fulfil their roles and responsibilities, exploring different parenting styles.|
|Rules and boundaries||To help parents explore different approaches to discipline, setting ground rules with rewards and sanctions, learning new strategies for problem solving.|
|Bringing it all together||Reflect on previous sessions and share learning and practical tips.|
Please note: These sessions are currently on hold due to Covid-19 safety measures. Dates of future sessions will be given as soon as possible.
