Parents

At Beeslack Community High school we value all of our pupils equally and have high expectations of achievement and standards of conduct. There is nothing more important within a school community than developing a culture based on care and respect. Our pupils are provided with a wide range of learning programmes to ensure that they have the opportunity to attain at the highest level and achieve success. Our most able pupils are supported onto academic programmes to ensure that they achieve university entrance qualifications and innovative vocational programmes have been developed to prepare others for the world of work;

Developing a strong partnership with all our parents is a priority and we know that your support is crucial to your child’s success. We are committed to keeping you informed about your youngster’s progress and development through regular reporting, parents’ information evenings, newsletters and our web-site. We encourage you to attend parents’ evening, social events and to get involved in the life of the school through joining the Beeslack Association – Parent Council. We operate an open door policy and you can contact us by phone and e-mail or visit the school if you have any concerns about your youngster’s progress or wellbeing.
