Each term, I will be looking to run a Parent Focus Group. Each group will have a particular focus (e.g. homework, school meals, etc.) and it will be an opportunity for me to learn more about the views of parents relating to each particular topic. This will then impact on the way the school evolves and any future changes that are implemented relating to the area of discussion. If you are available and interested in taking part in a Parent Focus Group, please keep visiting this page for further information.

Wednesday 22nd March 2017
In the new term, I will be looking to hold another Parent Focus Group after the success of the last one earlier this year. This time, I am looking to gain insight into views on our plans for a breakfast club at the school and also the school dinners on offer to the children here. Those parents taking part will also be invited to sample a school dinner, if they wish, to learn more about what is on offer in the school. I anticipate running this one morning during the week commencing the 15th May and predict it lasting approximately an hour. If you would like to take part in this focus group, please contact the office or email email@example.com.

Due to receiving limited responses regarding the below focus groups, both the communications and homework focus groups will be held on Thursday 26th January at 9.00am. If you wish to attend, please contact the school office. Your ideas and opinions will directly affect how we move forwards with these two areas.
Thursday 1st December 2016
On Tuesday 10th January at 9.00am and Tuesday 17th January at 2.00pm, we will be holding a focus group meeting to look at the topic of homework.

On Thursday 26th January at 9.00am and Wednesday 1st February at 2.00pm, we will be holding a focus group meeting to look at the topic of communication.
