Parent Voice

Parent Voice aims to promote the genuine involvement of parents across Sheffield whose children attend Outwood Academy City. It is our hope that we will make a positive difference for children, young people and their families and, by working together, we will be able to support and influence change for the future of every child and young person at Outwood Academy City.

The purpose of Parent Voice is to strengthen communication between parents/carers and the academy by focusing on:

  • Issues that are important to parents/carers
  • Informing and thereby empowering all parents/carers
  • Representing as many different parents/carers and their viewpoints as possible
  • Encouraging open and honest engagement with parents/carers
  • Promoting respect and clear communication between parents/carers and academy leaders

We support the right of all Outwood Academy City students to enjoy their school years in a safe, caring and happy environment and we also support the need for teachers and other academy professionals to work in a well-organised, calm and polite workplace. Parent Voice aims to:

  • Develop effective relationships between staff, parents/carers and other professionals associated with the academy
  • Arrange events and activities that raise funds for projects in the academy which will enhance the educational experience of our students and to support charitable organisations
  • Organise social events for the enjoyment of our students, their families and the wider community
