Class Reps

The Lea is fortunate to have an active and enthusiastic Class Rep system in place.  The current reps are:

Nursery Elaine and Hannah
Reception Shirley and Charlotte
Year 1 Sabela and Tess
Year 2 Laura and Caroline
Year 3 Lisa and Gemma
Year 4 Miho and Gail
Year 5 Cathryn
Year 6 Bethany

We see the role of a Class Rep as helping to maintain the sense of community among the class parents and providing a link between parents, teachers, governors and the PTA – with the ultimate goal of making our school the best one possible for our children.   We suggest that this role is a termly or two termly role. If you are a current class rep you should ideally find a class replacement before you stand down.

Maintaining Class Contact Details

GDPR prevents the school from sharing contact information so Class reps will approach parents to ask them if they wish to put their details on to the class list.  By maintaining a class list the Class Rep can help welcome new families and assist them in getting to know other families and to feel part of the school community.

PTA Events

Class reps attend PTA meetings so that they can share information on forthcoming PTA events to parents and enlist support where needed.

Social events

Class coffee mornings and parents’ social evenings are always good fun and the most effective way of helping parents get to know each other and generating a good team spirit in your class.

Teacher Liaison

Teachers also like to be kept in the loop. Class Reps can be an invaluable aid in disseminating and collecting information e.g. last-minute reminders about class trips, etc.

Governor Liaison

Class Reps should be aware of current Parent Governors at the school for dissemination and collection of relevant information.
