It is that time of year when governors and trustees come together for an FGB Meeting and, amongst other things, set the fees for the coming academic year. The governors and trustees are keen that decisions about fees and the development of a sustainable business model for the school are made with reference to the views of as many members of the community as possible. The recent Whole School Meeting was well attended and participants elected to continue the discussion at a further meeting on Monday evening. Conversations with individual parents have continued through the week both informally and at a handful of governor surgeries.

In addition, all parents have received an invitation to participate in the online survey. Whilst it might make more sense within the context of the Whole School meetings, we would really like to encourage you to fill it in whether you took part in face-to-face discussion or not. The data gathered will give us useful information into the demographics and opinions of our community as we look to develop a sustainable business model for the school.

The online survey is anonymous and the data will only be used for the purpose of informing the overarching strategy. If you haven’t done so already, you can access the survey via the link in this email. The survey will close on Monday at 9.00am. Sophia (Benny Y6)
