We have a Parents in Partnership group (PIP) for parents, carers and families, which serves two main purposes:
- To provide a regular forum for discussion, consultation and communication of information regarding key aspects of your child’s education (homework, KS3 tests, revision skills etc)
- To provide opportunities for parents, carers and other family members to support the school by assisting at school public events and, very importantly, helping to raise funds
Fund raising events include student socials and supporting various other drama and musical productions, with all proceeds going directly to support the education of students.
With the funds raised, we have been able to facilitate the leasing of a minibus with full disabled access for the school. This allows us to be more flexible and inclusive in taking groups of students out on educational visits or to sporting events. We also provided four new outdoor table tennis table (proving extremely popular), drum kit and beautiful crockery for our catering students to display their dishes on.
Each year, students, curriculum and guidance teams bid for money from PiP and there is evidence school-wide of how we have listened to requests and helped financially.
We also recognise the contributions of students to the school community through a ‘PiP Award’ at the end of each term.
If you would rather not be directly involved in fundraising, we would ask that you register with ‘Easyfundraising.org’ and name Congleton High School Parents in Partnership’ as your chosen charity. This has made a real difference, without costing any of our supporters a single penny.
The PiP group is a registered charity and always welcomes new members. Please contact Mrs C Eckersley for more information and dates of forthcoming meetings.
