Parent Focus Group

The introduction of a Collis ‘Parent Focus Group’


The Mission of the Parent Focus Group is: 

To act as a focused sounding board for future ideas and events and to give constructive feedback.


What is the Parent Focus Group?

This new group will meet every few months and is an additional body that represents the parent voice within the school. The meetings are chaired by Mr Hogston with parent members representing each year group.  The main purpose of the group is to provide constructive feedback to the school while acting as a ‘sounding board’ for future decisions on school policy.  Although the group does not decide school policy it will be consulted and listened to so the school has a range of views and feedback before making any policy decisions.


What sort of things will be discussed at the meeting?

There will be an open agenda – so if it needs discussing it will be discussed. The first couple of meetings will look at school finance, school meals, the CSA, healthy schools and birthday sweets/treats.
