For example, two parents on another thread seem to be surprised that the O level system has been changed without any consultation. Is there normally some form of consultation? Are there, for example, parent governors to go and speak to when something serious happens?
I am sorry that I am asking lots of questions, but I am new to all this and have no information about this side of things. I suppose I assumed these things existed (and perhaps they do) and expected someone to tell me about them at some point before September.
If they don't exist, then they should.

I think KenHo was including me in this comment, but actually I didn't say that exactly. What I said was that I was surprised we hadn't had any consultation with the teachers about their opinions on our children's options, for example, if my daughter decided to choose Latin I suspect the teacher would try to talk her out of it, based on previous test results. However, now that I have received my GCSE information in the post I know that there is a scheduled meeting when all the teachers will be present to discuss optionsKenHo wrote: For example, two parents on another thread seem to be surprised that the O level system has been changed without any consultation.
Apart from the GCSE issue I haven't had occasion, as yet, to feel the need for a PTA-type organisation. Any queries I have had have been dealt with by the housemistress and I actually feel quite well-informed about the goings-on at CH

I must admit that does seem strange !onewestguncopse wrote:In most schools both parents and staff are represented on the Governing Body. At the moment this is not the case here (as far as I am aware).
