NEALE Wade Community College has set up a base in March Library to help it establish stronger links with the community.

ParentPoint, a partnership between the college, the college’s Parent’s Forum and March Library, has installed a notice board in the library to inform parents and the wider community about what is happening at the school and highlight the students’ achievements.

The college’s governors say the partnership will help it establish a greater presence in the town centre.

Rosie Veitch, a member of the college’s Parent Forum who served as a parent governor for four years, said: “There was a feeling that the school was not particularly close to the community and it was hard for people to get information about it.

“Since the change in principal the way the school works has changed and we decided that we needed to create an information point in the centre of March where parents could get information about the school.

“It’s great putting information online about the school but a lot of people don’t have access to the internet so this initiative will help them.

“People may have queries they think are too trivial to approach the school with so this resource will assist them.”

She said: “When I have mentioned this idea to schools in the Huntingdon district they have all seemed incredibly keen.”
