Dear Parents/Carers at Bishop Fox’s School
I am Ruth James and over the last few months I have been working with Clive Miller, Assistant Headteacher (Student Welfare), to find out how I could work with the school to positively support and help parents through the teenage years.
Therefore, we have given your a questionnaire to find out what your issues and concerns are, the results will be used to develop a programme of courses for you. The questionnaire is anonymous.
I have 2 teenage daughters and a pre-teen so I am also going through the teenagers years so have personal knowledge and experience of the challenges as well as how to deal with them. My courses are straightforward and practical because I know you don’t have time to waste so I focus on what you can do which will make a positive difference in parenting your teenagers. The feedback I’ve had so far has been very positive.
The teenage years are important for your children’s future so I have developed a number of courses which focus on how you can help them develop their skills and expertise, it may be about academic ability or it may be about more practical skills. Would you be interested in these? Let us know by completing and returning the questionnaire.
Once we have the results, we will analyse them and develop a programme of courses which will be advertised through the school.
We want to do what we can to practically support you through the teenage years so please help us by completing and returning the questionnaire by Friday.
I look forward to meeting you over the coming months.
