Research has shown that parental engagement in student’s school life, alongside school staff, has a significantly positive effect on achievements. The Long Eaton School recognises this benefit and strongly believes that together in partnership with parents, we can help our students achieve both academically and personally.
To ensure that our parents are an active part of school life, we have set up a parent/staff group called VOLES. We meet each term to discuss any items raised by staff and/or parents. We welcome any agenda items and will encourage parents to raise these in the period leading up to a meeting.
Previous members have organised fundraising events that have contributed to the purchase of a school minibus, a gas bbq for school events and event gazebo.
If you would like to be involved, please contact Mrs Emma Price (Student Mentor) firstname.lastname@example.org
