‘Share the Air’ and 1:1s with parents – You said… we’re doing…

Thanks to all parents who have come along to my informal conversations this term.  Great discussions and feedback.

A key theme coming through these conversations and the feedback from Parents’ Evening surveys is ‘How can we better acknowledge and share the work of the Parent Council’. 

What we are doing?  … improving access to information about the Parent Council and their priorities.  Information can be accessed on the  website and school blog  and we will also  trial e-mailing Parent Council information directly to parents/carers.

Watch this space.. more to come in the future, we are actively working together with parents on this. 

Next Parent Council Meeting is on Monday 23 March 2020  at 7pm (please note change of date).  All welcome.
