Parent Group

The aim of our Parent Group is to give parents and carers the opportunity to meet with other parents, discuss school life, find out about useful local services and chat with our Family Liaison Officer, Mrs Johnston. 

The Parent Group meets at least termly and all parents and carers are welcome to attend. You don't have to come to every meeting and you can say as much or as little as you like, it's a very supportive and informal group. Meetings take place in school and refreshments are served.

We look forward to seeing you there!
