The Concorde Partnership South is a post 16 collaboration between Bradley Stoke Community School, Abbeywood Community School, Winterbourne International Academy, Patchway Community College, Bristol Technology and Engineering Academy and South Gloucestershire and Stroud College. This year, our students are enrolled on courses across the Partnership at both Key Stage 4 and Post 16. Participation in the Concorde Partnership indicates our commitment to working in close partnership with our neighbouring schools.
Working with parents and carers is a priority for Bradley Stoke Community School and we are proud to be the first school in the country to achieve a Gold award for the ‘Parental Engagement Quality Standard’ endorsed by the Schools Network.
We know that students make the most progress when there are strong links between home and school and we carefully listen to the views of parents and carers.
- We hold regular parent information evenings and report on a routine basis so that parent/carers know how much progress students are making
- Parent consultation evenings are calendared throughout the year to enable information and communication exchange between parents/carers and teachers. Each evening is open to every year group so that parents/carers have plenty of opportunities to meet with subject teachers. Appointments are booked via the website
- We understand that if parents/carers are happy and can communicate effectively with school, students will feel confidently supported at home. In recognition of this, a member of the Leadership Team is available to discuss any issues between 8:00am and 8:30am each morning
Working with our partner primary schools is an essential part of our school. We visit all of our partner primary schools to meet with their pupils and talk to members of staff about their primary experience and the move to secondary school. We host a number of events and activities throughout the year to provide primary pupils with a taste of life in a secondary school. In preparation for the move to secondary school, parents and carers of new Year 7 students are invited to an information evening prior to joining Bradley Stoke Community School and there is a transition day for all new Year 7 students during term 6.
