We are always looking to improve on the education and experiences we provide for all pupils at Claires Court and with that in mind Mr Richards and Mrs Ruddick would like to welcome parents of pupils in Year 11 at Senior Girls to book a time with them for a 1:1 meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to provide a time for parents to pass on their constructive feedback to the school as well as providing an opportunity for parents to share opinions, feelings and perceptions on school based activities. We have run similar meetings with both Year 7 and Year 8 parents this term and the feedback has been invaluable.
