Aspire's Parent Voice

Aspire’s Parent Voice meetings are an exciting opportunity to meet and network with other parents of children with special education needs through positive and constructive discussion. The meetings are designed to invite parental contributions in developing the whole school provision of Special Educational Needs that we offer at Hanley Castle High School and further enable our parents’ voices to be heard.

The meetings will not be an opportunity to discuss the needs of individual students but if parents would like to do so they must arrange a meeting with the SENCO separately.

Our parent champion is Mrs Lorna Gallagher who is available at the end of every meeting to hear your suggestions or feedback.

Previous Aspire’s Parent Voice meetings have addressed:

  • Supporting students with special educational needs to complete homework
  • Making contribution towards the Hanley Castle High School SEN/D information report.
  • How to further develop communication between school and parents
  • Developing parent well-being sessions
  • Supporting with homework at home

Aspire’s Parent Voice meetings are scheduled termly throughout the year and parents with be notified with a letter prior to these meetings. Confirmation of attendance is needed in advance.
