Parent View

We value your opinion 

We recently held a Parent Governor election and had a very strong field of parents contending for four vacancies. I would like to thank all of the parents who put their names forward for election. It is fantastic to have such high levels of engagement from our parents and I know the positive impact this has on our children. 

The four parents who were elected and will now serve the school for four years are; Nicola Merriman, Claire Hardwick, Paul Shana and Helen Barton. I would like to welcome them to the Governing Board of Walkden High School and look forward to their contributions and view points. 

Being a Parent Governor is a huge commitment but there are other ways of having your voice heard. A simple and effective way to contribute to improving our school is to log-on to Ofsted’s ParentView and answer their short questionnaire. Thank you to those of you who have already been onto the ParentView webpage and contributed.
