We have now written to Education Secretary Nicky Morgan with our response to the White Paper Educational Excellence Everywhere.
Thank you for getting in touch and joining the PTA UK Facebook discussion to let us know your concerns. We have shared these with Nicky Morgan in this letter.
We have offered, in partnership with Parent Councils UK, to work with the Government to establish a parent body in every school, the new parent portal and refreshed policies on admissions and complaints. You can view more about the collaboration between PTA UK and Parent Councils UK here:
PTA UK and Parent Councils UK join forces to promote parental engagement in schools
We have also recommended in our response that parent associations or parent councils need a clear line of communication with the Academy Trust Governing board and other decision-making groups through the presence of a ‘link’ governor or trustee.
The PTA UK will continue to keep you informed of developments. Do follow us on Twitter for updates.
