Partnership with Parents
Working in partnership with parents is very important at Turney school. The home school agreement is important so that procedures and policies are adhered to ensure that together we continue to provide a secure, caring and supportive environment in which there is an expectation of pupil achievement and raised attainment. Please ensure you have returned your agreement to the school.
At Turney School, the senior leadership team provide an open door policy to the staff, pupils and parents/carers. Any parent or carer can telephone the school at any time with any concerns or worries they may have and a member of the senior leadership team will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively parents can drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a suggestion box outside the school office.
Partnership with Organisations
We are always looking for links with other organisations in the community to support our young people with work related learning (work experience), particularly in Years 10 and 11.
Last year we successfully worked with
If you have any links with suitable organisations that may consider taking our pupils with complex needs for work placements, please contact the school.
Jack Petchey Foundation
Each term we celebrate the achievements of our young people through the Jack Petchey scheme. The Jack Petchey Foundation makes grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people. The Foundation exists to raise the aspirations of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.
At Turney School students are nominated and selected for the award through the Student Council. Past winners are encouraged to share their experiences on the Jack Petchey website.
