Parents Association

Introduction

 The origins of the Parents Association stem from the very start of our journey to create a new secondary school in the Borough of Wandsworth. Four of the original Members were part of the intial group of local people who were instrumental in the creation of Bolingbroke Academy.

As the Academy has grown and developed, a Governing Body was created consisting of  Parents, local Community members and representatives from the Ark Network. The Chair of the Parent Council is also a Parent Governor to ensure there is a direct line of communication from Parents and Carers to the Academy's Leadership Team.

Role

To coordinate fundraising and social activities that bring together and enrich the Academy experience for Pupils, Parents, Carers and the wider local community.

To act as the voice of Parents and Carers and facilitate the flow of information between them the staff of Bolingbroke Academy.

Association is automatic and includes Parents, Carers and Friends of Bolingbroke Academy.
