By one name or another, most schools have a Teacher Parent Network. However, at Charterhouse Square School it works a little differently. Our TPN is dedicated to reinforcing the relationship between the School and the parents, to the benefit of the whole-of-school experience of the children; we are not here to fundraise.
TPN class reps bring parents’ non-academic issues to termly meetings, the results of which are discussed between the TPN Chair and the Head of the School, Caroline. From library books to plastic waste, swimming lessons to air pollution, Caroline’s support means that Charterhouse Square School parents are privileged to have a voice on all manner of topics.
Happily, there is also more to it than just the meetings. Whether we are welcoming children at the back-to-school picnic, puzzling parents at the annual quiz night, or waving off leavers at their end-of-year disco, the TPN juggles a busy calendar of fun events throughout the year too.
There are typically three or four TPN reps per class, and if you would like to know more about getting involved yourself, just raise your hand!
