PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.

Parent Voice

The new Harris Academy Orpington Parent Voice will meet each half term and is open to any parent who would like to contribute positively to the life of the academy.

Parental involvement is crucial to the academy’s continuous improvements. Although not a decision-making body, Parent Voice will influence decisions on a wide range of issues through an open dialogue with staff.


Next meeting dates

All meetings are held at Harris Academy Orpington from 5pm-6pm.

  • 30th January 2020
  • 19th March 2020
  • 14th May 2020
  • 2nd July 2020

All parents/carers are welcome to any of the meetings.  If you would like to attend any Parent Voice meeting please contact Mrs Rumble via info@harrisorpington.org.uk

The meetings will give feedback to the academy and contribute to policy-making on issues which affect parents. Having Parent Voice will help to create a culture within which parents, and the whole community, can feel part of the decision-making process and share their commitment to the school’s future.

If you would like to join Parent Voice, or would like more information, please email Mrs Rumble via info@harrisorpington.org.uk.
