Calling all Parents

Both the Council and Sheffield’s schools are committed to raising the quality of education in our city and achieving the best outcomes for children, young people and families. Although a lot has been achieved in recent years to improve standards in our schools and opportunities for children and young people, there is more to do to ensure all children are getting the best from the education system.

There has been a challenge in recent months to respond to a new policy agenda announced by the Government – where schools will have greater freedom to make their own decisions. Tackling these challenges will require changing the relationship between the school system and the council and between decision makers and parents.

There needs to be a new and more equal partnership between Schools, the Council, parents and young people. A key step in building this new relationship will be a large City Wide event for Parents in Sheffield. This event has been designed in partnership with parents to enable the voice and priorities of parents to be heard.

All aspects of education and learning such as the quality of schools, helping children to succeed and how money is spent will be discussed at the event. This is a not to be missed opportunity to change things for the better. The event will take place between 10am and 2pm on Monday 6 June, at the MegaCentre in Sheffield, we hope you can attend and have a say on these important issues. Lunch and childcare will be available.

Please confirm your attendance and any childcare or dietary requirements by Friday 27 May 2011 to or on 0114 2735141.
