Parent Voice

The College values our Parent Voice and we have built on the College's previous excellent achievements which included being awarded the National Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA).

Parents have told us they wanted to know how best to support their children, how best to communicate with the College and where to turn to for help. Consequently, we have developed our Medina College Parent Voice.

Medina College Parent Voice provides a forum for parents to keep up to date with events and changes at the College. All parents and carers are members of the Medina College Parent Voice, simply by having a child at the College. We promote community spirit and our mission is to help each other supportively. If someone has a question, we will endeavour to find an answer. We are an active group of parents who are critical friends of the College. If there is an issue, then we bring this to the attention of the Headteacher, the Board of Governors and the IIT. Our voice is heard. This feedback is vital if we are to continue to raise our educational standards and further develop our sense of community. We know that parental involvement and support for their children's learning is crucial to a successful College.

Becoming an active member is as simple as attending one of our regular meetings, sending us an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or visiting our Facebook page. We have hundreds of parents visiting the pages, thus confirming my belief that one question on Facebook, replaces dozens of identical questions directed elsewhere. However, the main advantage of our Facebook page is that it is interactive, which enables parents to get involved without the commitment of attending meetings. This allows parents to air their views, make suggestions for the Medina Parent Voice Committee to consider and implement. If you are unable to access a computer, please contact us via the College on 526523 and leave a message at reception or write to us, via the College, marking all correspondence 'For the attention of Medina College Parent Voice'.
