Governors’ ‘Parent Voice’ Forum – Tuesday 3 October 6.00pm


It is my pleasure to invite parents/carers of all students of Outwood Academy Bydales to the termly Parent Voice meeting, which will take place in the Main Hall on Wednesday 3 October 2017 from 6-7pm.

Each term the Governors of the Academy Council organise an informal meeting at which Mr Wappat, our Principal, provides a short update of the latest developments at the Academy. This is followed by an ‘Open Forum’ at which those present are free to raise any questions or queries about the Academy.
If you are unable to attend this meeting or would prefer to send a written query or comment, my email address is:

This is not an opportunity to discuss the academic or social needs of individual students, as queries concerning these are welcomed by direct contact with appropriate members of staff.

We propose to hold our termly Parent Voice meetings this academic year on:

• Tuesday 3 October 2017
• Wednesday 7 February 2018
• Monday 18 June 2018

As you will know, the Year 11 students at Outwood Academy Bydales have once again achieved the best ever results in the history of the school. The Governors would like to add their congratulations to the students in both Year 10 and Year 11 and thank the staff for their commitment and hard work, and to parents for their obvious support too.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 3 October at 6pm.

Yours faithfully

Tricia Taylor
Chair of Academy Council
