Since September 2017 we have decided to move away from a set Parent Partnership group and instead have Parent Working Groups to support the school in various aspects of developing provision. We believe that our open door approach and the availability of staff at the start and end of the day means that any concerns can be addressed quickly and at the time rather than them being saved up for a particular meeting. Parents will be invited to be involved in the working party groups.
In the 2017-18 school year we had three working groups:
Dyslexia - led by Ms Nelson
Homework - led by Mr Copping
Diversity- led by Ms Nelson
In 2018-19 we currently have one planned working group. This will be facilitated by TfGM, the focus will be on travel to school and parking.
