Welcome back to everyone now that the new term is properly underway!
We’d like to especially welcome parents and carers who are new to the school this year. Remember our FAQ page on broughtonhighpc.org may have the answers to all your questions, and if they are not up there, you can e-mail Claire at: email@example.com and our team will endeavour to help! Obviously we can’t give advice for individual pupils, but hopefully we can point you in the right direction.

There is a lot for parents and carers to learn when their child starts High School! We have set up a new FAQ page on the Parent Council website (broughtonhighpc.org) which will answer some of the questions people new to the school might have, e.g:
Who do I contact if I need to speak to someone about my child?
What are the different classes – tutor group, point and sets?
How will I find out about my child’s progress?
The school’s website, social media and the new app all provide information, but sometimes you just want to ask another parent! Unlike at primary school, we don’t have the same opportunities to bump into each other at the school gate, so the PC have set up an e-mail service. E-mail:
and a volunteer from the PC will do their best to help! Obviously, they will not be able to comment re. individual pupils or staff, but they can offer advice from the parent’s point of view.
Many thanks to Claire Cowell and Lucy Mason, parents at the school, who have put a lot of effort into bringing these FAQs and the e-mail service together!
We have our last few events of the school year coming up:
Fundraising chess cafés –
Volunteers warmly welcomed at the chess cafés in the school hub on Sunday 2nd June and Sunday 16th June, 10-4pm. If you can help for an hour on the day, please contact:
Parent Council meeting –
All parents and carers are welcome to attend the last PC meeting of the term on Wednesday 5th June from 6pm. Hear about the school’s plans for next year, meet other parents, and maybe sample some home baking….
The last Parent Council meeting of the school year is on Wednesday, 5th June, from 6pm. Meetings are held in the school staff-room on the first floor. All parents/carers are welcome to attend, and there is no problem if you can’t stay for the full meeting.
PC meetings are a great opportunity to find out what is happening at the school and to meet members of the senior leadership team and other parents.
Draft minutes of earlier meetings are available in the “About” section of our website.
