Parents’ Hub

Education is always more successful when a school works with parents and carers. The Barlow RC High School’s Parent Hub has been designed to ensure that parents and carers, in conjunction with staff, can have a meaningful influence on both the operation and strategic direction of the school. The school holds Parents Hub meetings throughout the school academic year, this years meetings are on:

  • Wednesday 20th November 2019

  • Wednesday 11th March 2020

  • Wednesday 10th June 2020

There is an open invitation to all parents to attend the Parent Hub but we do ask that you confirm your attendance so we can select a suitable meeting location and order refreshments. Meetings will take place at 5.30pm – 6.30pm.  If you would like to attend, please confirm your attendance with Mrs Nicola Cooke on 0161 445 8053 or email 

Although not a decision making body, the Parent Hub has the opportunity to influence decisions through an open dialogue. We aim to develop a stronger partnership with parents by improving communication.
