Parent Partnership

What is the Parent Partnership?

Our Parent Partnership is a body which:

  • gives parents/carers a voice and enables them to contribute to school decision making
  • enables parents/carers to meet, share ideas and feed back to the school
  • helps develop a partnership between parents/carers and school
  • talks to parents/carers and advises the Local Governing Body of parents’/carers views, when appropriate and if time permitting

When does the Parent Partnership meet?
The Gomer Junior Parent Partnership was established in September 2014 and typically meets with Mrs Mulhall on Friday, once a half term. The dates for the meeting are listed on the school electronic calendar which features on this website. Each meeting has a clear agenda. If you have items you would like to be discussed at one of the meetings, please share this with Mrs Mulhall or speak to one of the Parent Partnership representatives.

Which Parent / Carers are Representatives?
The Parent Partnership has been kept deliberately small so that matters can be taken to a ’round table’ discussion. In September of each new academic year, Mrs Mulhall invites any parent/carer to represent their child’s tear group. The time given by the Parent Partnership is greatly appreciated by the school and views and opinions do help to inform decision making. Currently, the year groups are represented by:

Mrs Michelle White
x1 Vacancy
Mrs Karen Elwall
Mrs Stables
Miss Emma Adolpho
Mrs Alix Horne
Mr Phil Ashton
Mrs Fiona Moss
Mrs Erin Sutcliff

Fancy joining the Parent Partnership? Please do let Mrs Mulhall know.

Research and key findings:
• parental involvement has a significant effect on children’s achievement throughout the years of schooling
• educational failure is increased by lack of parental interest in schooling
• in a recent study in England 72% of parents said that they wanted more involvement
Details of key research studies on parental involvement are included in a DCSF leaflet entitled The Impact of Parental Involvement on Children’s Education. This is available at
