Family Councils

“Genuine pupil, parent and staff voice and participation” is a value that runs through our schools and services. We recognise that the empowerment of parents through real parental voice and engagement can be a very effective way to form a strong school community.

Parents and carers of all TCES pupils are welcome to join their school or service’s Parent Council, in which they can actively participate in all elements of their child’s school life and connect with other parents/carers of complex ASC, SEND or SEMH pupils. Many of our parents and carers have expressed how vital this support network alone is for them.

Members are encouraged to have a real say in the direction of the school; this might be to help to fundraise, assist in school events or join the interview panel for new staff.

We believe that, by giving parents and carers the opportunity to become fully embedded within our schools, we have much stronger school communities and much happier parents, carers and pupils.

What our Parents Say

Time has definitely flown and my son is a completely different person from the one that enrolled. I have so many positive things to say about this school. The one thing I will always say is that this school has helped me and my son so much - endless support and positive vibes no matter how big or small my dilemma or question.

My son was so excited to have me witness his assembly. He loves that I am involved in the school.

I think being involved with the school helps my son to see that we work together. I think it really does help.

It’s really good that parents can join assemblies to celebrate their child. The change in my daughter has been great because she can see I am interested.

They care about you in this place, sometimes I feel they care about you more than you care about yourself.
