Meet the Parents is about strengthening communities by encouraging parents to support their local schools.
Our core activity is running events in primary schools where people can ‘meet the parents’ and students from their local secondaries. We arrange for families to come and talk frankly about their experience at school. It fills a gap between slick open days and playground rumours.
Since 2012 we have won over scores of parents to staying local rather than sending their children to schools outside the area. Each child builds community cohesion and brings a boost to the secondary schools’ budget. The school roll is falling across London and beyond, increasing the pressure to attract more pupils.
In today’s educational landscape schools can change extremely quickly, yet parents’ views can often lag behind. Meet the Parents ensures they get up-to-date information they can trust.
We are now running events in the pre-school sector to build the school roll in primaries. We also advise on open days, branding and appearance, and make promotional films for schools through http://www.schoolsonscreen.com
