Parent Forum

Once a quarter parents of Avon Valley College students get together with some of the senior staff and Principal to discuss their concerns. This important forum gives parents a voice and answers to some challenging question. For those willing to take a more active role in supporting, the school, has a place on our Academy Advisory Board (AAB), where parents and volunteers from the local community meet, to review how the school is performing and its plans going forward.

Finally, on a more charitable front, we launched the new school library on 11th May 2019. So, whether you want your voice heard, have some great fun raising ideas, some free time for a worthy cause or want to have real say in the future of Avon Valley College, we need you, please contact us at: to find out more.

The objectives of the Parent Forum are:

  • To promote partnership between the College, its pupils, and all its parents.

  • To actively identify and represent the views of parents on the education provided by the College, and other matters affecting the education and welfare of its pupils.

The forum is made up of volunteer parents of children who attend the school, and is open to all parents at the college. It is desirable that the Forum reflect the diversity of the community, for example parental representation from the Armed Forces, all Year Groups, different cultures and ethnicities, gifted and talented and SEN etc.

Dates of future meetings and the minutes of past meetings will be available to all via the College website. Updates on the Forum's activities will also be shared via the College Magazine.

The Forum is an advisory body and has no financial or statutory powers.

There are no official Office Bearers, although the College will provide a minute taker for meetings, and support with other administration tasks such as circulating minutes, writing articles for the News Sheet, AVC Review and updating the Website.

Anyone interested in joining the Parent Forum should telephone 01980 652467 and ask to speak to Rachel Titchener, PA to the Principal

Please check the calendar for the date of the next meeting. If you cannot attend the meeting, please submit any questions or ideas for the forum to discuss by emailing:
