Parents/Carers Matter

At Beauchamp we understand the value of an equal partnership between teachers and parents/carers on the emotional and academic wellbeing of students. We want our parents/carers to have a voice on the issues that matter. Our aim is to enable parents/carers to access additional information so that you can exercise effective choice in your child’s education.

This year we are continuing a programme of informal sessions for parents/carers at Beauchamp. There are two types of sessions available each week and you are welcome to choose the one that best suits you. There is absolutely no obligation to attend every session.

Parent/Carer Forums

Regularly on Tuesdays from 6:30pm in the Refectory there will be a parent forum where a member of the Beauchamp leadership team will lead a discussion on key topics that were suggested to us by parents/carers last term. These sessions will be informal and there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Tuesday 25th September – Duke of Edinburgh Award

An opportunity to find out information about our plans for the year and advise students about how to apply. Open to year 10,11,12 and 13 students.

Thursday 27th September – Mindfulness – 6.00pm & 6.45pm

These sessions are designed to engage with parents/carers and pupils to understand key elements of mindfulness which can be used as part of their daily lives, at school and within family and social settings to reduce stress and anxiety. Benefits of this include the ability to manage behaviour and emotions, creating greater calmness, self-awareness, inducing relaxation, increasing kindness and empathy.
