FLIS is Friends of Little Ilford School. This is the forum for parents to learn about how they can support their child’s learning and become involved in the school community, to ask questions and share views and opinions. Throughout the year there is a programme of after school sessions run by teachers which helps parents understand how learning takes place in LIS. We at LIS believe that greater involvement and an improved partnership between the school and parents leads to further success for our students.
At the same time, FLIS provides a forum for parents to express their views, contribute to school initiatives and plan workshops to support and develop parenting skills. FLIS also develops community links and provides opportunities for the community to socialise and learn together.
Little Ilford School's Aspirations and Destinations Co-ordinator, Ms Ford, recently gave a presentation to FLIS parents on 9th May about Careers, Post-16 Pathways and Apprenticeships. It can be viewed here:

RSHE Curriculum Meeting
A meeting took place on Tuesday 8th June 2021 Zoom. The topic for discussion was the new RSHE curriculum. Set out below are details of the curriculum for RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) which started in September 2021, along with a fact sheet from the London Borough of Newham. Once you have read the document, there is a link to a survey which you can fill in if you wish: https://forms.gle/smKWqNMfB7rhXRYX7
Parents will be able to withdraw their child (following discussion with the school) from any or all aspects of Sex Education, other than those which are part of the science curriculum, up to and until three terms before the age of 16. Parents have to notify the headteacher, along with their reason. This will then be followed up with a meeting with the headteacher and the RSHE coordinators.
