Parent and Academy Contact Team (PACT)
PACT – Parent and Academy Contact Team
WHAT ARE OUR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES?
- To provide a forum where parents can make comments, raise questions and concerns
- To act as a gateway between the parents and the Academy.
- To collaborate with the Academy on improvement and development
- To provide a link from the parents/carers in to the Governing Body.
- To work with staff and students to raise funds for the Academy.
- To support the staff and students at the Academy.

These gatherings are a fantastic opportunity for parents and carers to work in collaboration with the Academy. We are building a learning community that is focused on ensuring that the young people attending Q3 Academy Tipton experience an outstanding education which develops them into active citizens; well prepared for the wider world when they complete their time with us.
Your views and your support are an essential aspect in building a culture of aspiration and success, so please come and join us.
