As a parent/carer, you automatically belong to the Ashton Park Parental Hub. We meet in a very informal manner every term. The AGM is held in Term 1. Meetings start at 7.15 pm and last for about one and a half hours.
We see ourselves as a support to the School, helping it in various ways including running fundraising projects, coordinating parent volunteers at the school, and assisting the school in its communication with parents.
Parent Hub meetings provide a vital two-way communication between the parent body and senior leaders of the school. Parents and carers have found that attending even the occasional Hub meeting has helped them maintain contact with the school that can often be lost in the move from primary to secondary. It is also an informal way of talking to the senior leaders at the school and other parents.
Election of Parental Hub officers in October 2021:
Alex Rogers elected as Chair
Mel Osborne elected as Vice Chair
Mat Shard elected as Treasurer
Catherine Oliver elected as Secretary
Jen Orme and Darius Cavina elected as general committee members
- Tuesday, 30 December
Dates for future meetings will be announced soon

We understand the transition to secondary school can be a busy and sometimes confusing time for new pupils and of course parents. In addition to your handbook you will have received on induction evening the Parental HUB have created a handy checklist for new parents. This is to help make sure you’re getting the most out of the communication avenues the school provides. We hope you find it useful!
