Parent Voice

We know that many parents would like to have the opportunity to make suggestions for how we can develop and improve our school and that finding time to attend meetings after school is very difficult. We are therefore going to set up a system for you to make suggestions online. Please remember that this is about getting your views about developing the school as a whole. If you have concerns regarding an individual child you should contact the school in the usual ways.

Please email your suggestions to:

We look forward to hearing from you and will publish key suggestions on our website.

Parent Governors

We are urgently looking for four Parent Governors to serve on the governing body of New College Leicester.

You don’t have to be an expert on education to be a school governor (although it’s amazing how much you will learn) and the experience and skills you bring as a parent are very valuable. There’s also lots of help, support and training opportunities to help you carry out this role.

Governing bodies are responsible for a wide range of matters including ensuring that pupils receive high quality education and planning for future development and improvement of the school. Parent governors play an important role as members of the governing body, including ensuring that the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community. You can find out more about New College Governing body on the governance pages on our web site here.

If you would like to stand for election or wish to nominate someone else, you should complete a nomination form and return it to the school via your child. Forms can be obtained from the school. Completed nomination forms must be returned by the end of the school day on Wednesday 2nd March 2011. If there are more nominations than vacant posts, a ballot will be held and one voting paper per parent will be sent to you via your child.

If you would like further information, please speak to Lynn Dawson, Clerk to the Governors 0116 231 8500 or email her at

We look forward to welcoming you onto the governing body.
