The Deanes actively encourages parents to get involved in all aspects of school life.  We believe that a child’s learning experience is enhanced when parents and the school work together to support the student. 

During the first months at The Deanes, all parents will be invited to meet their child’s tutor to establish a point of contact and to support the student with the move to secondary school. To further ease this transition, we have a dedicated email address for Year 7 parents. 

Regular contact is maintained throughout the year via online systems and Parents’ Evenings. Each term we hold a Parent Voice meeting, where parents and carers can come and meet with the Headteacher and members of the Senior Leadership team, to discuss any aspect of school life.  These meetings are an effective way for parents to communicate their views directly with the school.

We are fortunate to have a very active PTA who work tirelessly alongside the school, arranging events to raise funds for activities that will benefit our school community.  All new parents are encouraged to join.
