- Information on making assessment accessible is being designed with the parents.

-The format for parents’ evenings was reviewed with the focus group.


Parental engagement.

- Regular reviews of the website are conducted with the parents to ensure that all relevant information is needed, this has resulted in significant improvement.

- Parent workshop themes are selected in consultation with the parent focus group.

- A lunch-box policy has been developed with the parent group.

-The sports day format was improved with the input of the parent focus group.
