Parental Engagement

Claycots has a number of methods we currently use to engage with parents.  Different reasons for engagement may have different methods as outlined below:

Parent voice and feedback from parents

Information and announcements from school

Children’s learning

Parent participation

Parent questionnaires

Parent surveys

Parent-Teacher Association

Parent Forum

Parent Governors

Website front page

Parent’s evenings

Twitter feed



Parent workshops

Parent’s courses

E-safety updates (website)


In the future, Claycots School Partnership will be trying to reduce the number of methods to create a more comprehensive way for parents to find information from school and share information in a secure way online.  We will be producing our newsletters electronically, publishing them on the website and sending them via email to parents.  We intend to use social media streams to share information.  We are currently looking at ways to send all letter communications electronically via email and to invest in a bespoke media platform for parents to use to securely share information with school.
