Headteacher Update Meetings

At King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls we endeavour to engage with parents via a range of different methods.  The termly Headteacher update meeting gives parents the opportunity to ask questions about the decisions we make as a school or to request an update on a particular area such as homework, the curriculum or assessment.

Each term parents are invited to submit questions or areas they wish to receive an update on, in advance, so that the headteacher can prepare fully for the update.

An online meeting is arranged and all parents who have responded to the invite are sent an invitation to join the Headteacher’s update meeting. 

The headteacher (and others members of the school community) will then provide an update via an online meeting.  If parents have remaining questions that aren’t answered during the presentation they are invited to contact the school for an individual meeting, this keeps the meeting short and manageable. The meeting usually starts at 9:00 am and lasts for around 30 minutes

The Headteacher update meetings are for updates only based on the areas and questions submitted beforehand, we are not able to discuss individuals in an open meeting.  If you have a specific question relating to your child, we ask that contact the relevant achievement coordinator who will be happy to assist.

Parental Survey

We regularly send out surveys to consult with parents on a range of decisions.  In 2022 parents were consulted on the introduction of the new school uniform.  Their input greatly shaped the uniform that students wear today.  

Please check the weekly parent bulletin for surveys.

As well as surveys on key changes, we also survey parents on an annual basis on a range of school aspects.  The questions that parents are asked are based on the questions used by Ofsted.  This survey is sent out after every parent’s evenings.

This information is used to shape the school development plan. 

Areas included in the Parent survey are:-

Happiness, safeguarding, behaviour, curriculum and progress, extra-curricular opportunities and personal development
