Starting any new school can be a challenging time: meeting new people, finding your way around, remembering teachers’ names, knowing what kit is required for which PE lesson – and that applies to parents just as much as to the children. New students at Colyton Grammar School are very well looked after, and they have one another for support; for parents and guardians it can sometimes not be quite so easy, especially now that we do not have the same “playground time” that we experienced at Primary School.
With this in mind, the Parents’ Association (PA) have put together this welcome handbook in which you will find information on PA events during the year, secondhand uniform sales, the Book Club, meetings and a calendar of PA events.
All parents, guardians and staff at Colyton are automatically members of the PA. We exist to support the students and the school through fundraising and in doing so aim to foster good parent/school relations. Information about events and activities can be found on this website but, as a start, I hope you find this handbook both helpful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any help with PA matters.
Our school has a very strong sense of community despite the geographical isolation of students and their families and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy being part of the Parents’ Association.
