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

Tuesdays from 6:30 – 7:30pm 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 have been suggested to us by parents/carers. These sessions will be informal and there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Please find the programme of forum topics for the first half term below, we ask that you book a place using our booking system to reserve a place.


Events

Tuesday 19th September 2017 – Online Safety: The Risks & Warning Signs

Session by Wendy Marsh from Leicestershire County Council

Whilst the subject of this forum can be sensitive, due to recent high profile cases in the Midlands and Leicestershire of child sexual exploitation and online grooming, Leicestershire County Council believe it is important to raise awareness with all parents and carers. This is an opportunity to hear first-hand about the risks and warning signs to look out for as well as precautions and actions you can take to protect your children.

For parents and carers of students from all years within Beauchamp College.

Tuesday 26th September 2017 – Knife Crime: Risks & Dangers

Session by PC Carl Southerly from the Leicestershire Police

Leicestershire Police would like to discuss the topic of knife crime with all parents/carers as they have seen a growing acceptance amongst young people to carry and use knives. We would like the opportunity to work with our young people to raise awareness of this topic, but before doing so invite our parents/carers to hear the key messages first. PC Carl Sutherley will deliver a gathering on knife crime to Year 10 students during the week of Monday 9th October and hopefully later in the term to Year 7. This is a parent/carer opportunity to see the presentation before your child.

For parents and carers of students from all years within Beauchamp College.
