At Lodge Park we believe that a strong partnership with parents is really important.
A regular programme of Parents’ Evenings exists, where parents and carers have the opportunity to meet with their child’s subject teachers to discuss academic progress and receive pastoral updates.
Our Parent Governor team helps to bring a parent/carer perspective to the strategic management of the academy. They play a valuable role in demonstrating how the academy is perceived from a parent/carer’s point of view, helping to shape academy policy.
We ask that all parents and carers help us to uphold key academy policies, such as championing high attendance and correct uniform.
Parent Code of Conduct
Lodge Park Academy Code of Conduct for Parents, Carers and Visitors
At Lodge Park Academy, we believe pupils learn best in a safe and supportive environment based on respect and trust, underpinned by an effective partnership between parents, staff and the wider community. High standards of behaviour are required of pupils, and staff are expected to act professionally at all times. Our parents and carers understand the importance of a good working relationship to equip children with the necessary skills for adulthood and we value the contributions parents/ carers make with their participation in the life of our academy.
This Code of Conduct for Parents, Carers and Visitors is endorsed by the Academy Scrutiny Committee (ASC). It provides a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our academy about the conduct expected of them. It sets out both what they should aim to do, and details conduct which will not be tolerated. This code complements the Trust’s ‘Complaints Policy’ which is designed to handle complaints in a sensitive and mutually supportive manner (see the academy website or contact the academy office)

Lodge Park uses a system to report information about progress and attendance to parents called My Child At School
