Meetings are termly, open to all families and the agenda is shared in advance. Parents have the opportunity to add items to the agenda. Items are categorised as 'for information' or 'for discussion'. The school will endeavour to run a free creche during this time, to enable as many parents to attend as possible. One of the termly meetings per year will be held in the evening.
