Parent Connection

What is Parent Connection?

Bideford College is connecting with parents across the school year through a range of formats and venues, offering advice, support and information in keeping your child happy and on track.

These sessions are designed to give you more information surrounding key points in your child’s journey through Bideford College.

We realise that the changing nature of education can be confusing. Parent Connection sessions offer an informal environment in which to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of how we work.

We really do hope that you will be able to attend any relevant sessions, hopefully you will feel that you are not alone and have a little more knowledge than before.

Please book your place through the parent evening booking section of the website.
