Parent Focus Group Meetings

As a school, we are always looking to broaden our lines of communication with parents and allow opportunities for them to express their view.  With that in mind, we are interested in holding regular focus group meetings with parents providing a discussion based opportunity for them to share their view on a specified topic.  The first meeting will focus on the well documented challenges and difficulties that young people face with today’s social media and how we can manage and support with this.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday 14th February from 4pm.  If you are interested in being part of this focus group meeting, please contact Naomi Batley in the PSU on 01159744050 ext 303 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
