Parents Working Group (PWG)

What is the Parents Working Group?

One of the outcomes of the Theory U process was the need for closer interactions between the school community and the parents. 

Following the school’s request via the Friday Flier for input from parents, a self-elected group of parents and staff formed a working group to assess the gap and how best to fill it. We have been meeting regularly since April 2017.  

As of September 2018, the PWG aim to hold bi-termly Round Table Meetings, open to the whole school community. The intention for these meeting is to create a space for healthy dialogue between the parents and the school management and faculty, allowing for valuable input from the parents that may support the school and what it delivers for our children.

The PWG is working hard to create an environment of open communication and transparency, which has underpinned each of our meeting. Our desire is that the Round Table Meetings will also function in this way.

 

The first Round Table Meeting is being held on: 

Wednesday 7th November, 19:30 for 19:45 start - 21:15, in the Long Room.

Wednesday 6th March, 19:30 for 19:45 start, in the Long Room

Wednesday 12th June, 19:30 for 19:45 start, in the Long Room

 

What are Round Table Meetings?

  • A place for all parts of the community to meet
  • A place to bring parents’ concerns, issues and suggestions
  • A place to hear back from the school on how these points might be addressed or incorporated… or not…
  • A place to work together to come up with new solutions
  • A place for EVERYONE to be heard!

***MINI UPDATE***

(3rd December 2018)

We are looking for new members to join the core PWG team.  

We will be running an intro for interested people next week.  

If you would like to find out more...

please contact Reception or email pwg@michaelhall.co.uk

We are still working on how to capture the points raised at

the last Round Table Meeting

and how to communicate them clearly to the School and the parent body.  

(We would love to hear from anyone who is particularly interested in helping us with this!)  

We hope that by the next Round Table Meeting this process will be quicker and clearer.  

In the meantime, please bear with us 🙂
