Partnership with Parents
At Pear Tree Mead we aim to have a close relationship with parents. Ruth Bartlett, the Family Liaison Officer, is available if you have any issues, whether they are school related or personal. Please feel free to come and find her or make an appointment.
If you have a few hours to spare each week and would like to help out in school as a volunteer, please contact Ruth Bartlett for more details. Ruth.firstname.lastname@example.org
Following an overwhelming response from our supportive families we have been able to write an action plan for the coming year. This is focus on some of the suggestions made by parents, children and staff. They are a guide and we hope that we can fulfil this over the coming years. As these are only suggestions it may be evaluated and changed over the year like all action plans in school.
Thank you again for your support and we hope you continue this feedback on the next questionnaire at the end of the year.
