Parents' Committee

"The tradition of parent partnership is deeply rooted within our school and is one of which we are very proud."
"The tradition of parent partnership is deeply rooted within our school and is one of which we are very proud."

Kellett School will operate as one school across two campuses. The Parents’ Association (PA) lies at the heart of the school community; the current model has evolved to very effectively meet the needs of the preparatory school, and in doing so is responsible for a number of key functions, all of which are run on an entirely voluntary basis by parents.

A member of the preparatory faculty provides a link between the Parents’ Association and the preparatory school’s academic team, the PA’s Executive Secretary meets regularly with the Principal.

The Parents’ Association Committee currently performs the following roles:

Parents’ Committee - Preparatory Campus

  • Executive Secretary
  • Cooking Room Coordinator
  • Hospitality Coordinator(s)
  • Kellett Cares Coordinator(s)
  • Yearbook Coordinator 
  • Events
  • Special Events
  • Sports Day Coordinator
  • Home-School Liaison Coordinator

Contact details of each coordinator may be found in the school directory.

The Parents’ Committee provides an important link between the School, parents and teachers to help coordinate and support the various school, social and community activities that take place throughout the school year. There are numerous ways to get involved in volunteering at Kellett School and the Parents Committee and Class Parents are just one way. The Coordinators and the Class Parent positions are open to all parents for nomination in June every year.  Meetings of the PC take place regularly throughout term times. In addition, at the Class Coffee Mornings that take place early in the school year there is a call for volunteers to assist in the school.

Occasionally Special Events are proposed by the School and/or the parents. These events must have prior approval by the School and the Board, and overseen by them.

Please note that the PC remit does not extend to matters relating to Educational Policy. These should be referred initially to the Principal or may be referred to the Kellett Board of Governors.  Matters relating to individual pupils should initially be referred to the class teacher.

Any changes to the Parents Committee must be approved by the Board.
