We would like to welcome you to join our next Parent/Carer Voice meeting at 6.30pm until 7.30pm on Tuesday 14 November 2023, which will take place at Fambridge Road. Please arrive in reception and a member of staff will be there to greet you and direct you to the meeting room.
We are inviting you to submit questions in advance to Mr Meadows and Ms Everett. Please email Ms Davis, via email@example.com by Friday 10 November 2023 at 12 noon in order to enable us to manage the meeting in an orderly manner or to be able to provide an answer individually if more appropriate. Please confirm with Ms Davis that you will be attending.
Please note that Parent/Carer Voice can be a large forum, and, as such, it is not a suitable place to raise issues that are personal to your child. Such concerns should be addressed to your child's tutor or Pastoral Team as soon as possible, to ensure confidentiality and speed of response.
We very much hope that many parents and carers will be able to join us at this forthcoming event
