Parent Association - AIM

AIM (All Ideas Matter)

The parent association of Ark John Keats is called AIM (All Ideas Matter). It is open to every parent across both primary and secondary. The association works  to develop the link between school, parents and the local community. We meet every term to discuss progress since our last meeting and to organise events, share parent feedback and work collaboratively on strengthening our school community. AIM has worked on improving safety outside school, designing the parent questionnaire, shaping the parental workshop programme and organises our famous International Culture Day, celebrating the diverse foods and backgrounds of our community. This year AIM will continue to help develop links between school and home, develop our parental workshop and continue to discuss and inform the school’s development through our regular meetings.

If you would like to volunteer some of your time to support AIM and have not done so, please email Mr. Mullarkey at s.mullarkey@arkjohnkeatsacademy.org.  AIM is looking forward to seeing you at our future events.

 

AIM Christmas Collection

AIM, our parent association, has organised a Christmas collection to support Enfield Parent and Child, a local charity. You can find their website here. This organisation works in the local area to support children, young people and their families with advice on accessing educational provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, applying for school places, supporting young people’s mental health and wellbeing and skills and confidence building.

We would like to ask parents to donate some items to this charity over the Christmas period to support the excellent work they do in the local community. There will be a collection box in both the primary and secondary receptions for these donations open from Tuesday 28th November. The final deadline for all donations is Thursday 14th December. Donations do not need to be wrapped or new, just in good working condition. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated by the charity and make a significant contribution to their support of local families. The charity is currently in the process of expanding its counselling and therapy provision for young people and have asked for the following donations to support this;
