Agenda Points

1) Homework

 3) Communication – as a general point it was felt by all that replied that while the mediums used by the school were generally good, the poor spelling, punctuation, grammar and in-accuracies let the school down.

All reps to précis their responses and forward to SB for submission to Mr Twyman

4.

Mr Twyman asked the UPP to consider a Parent Conduct Agreement.  The UPP felt that this was not in our remit and should be decided upon by the school’s Governing body

No action required

5.

All reps agreed that feedback from parents/carers had been poor and that we should ask parents again for their feedback.  It was decided that additional advertising of the UPP was required.  UPP to produce a poster for the notice boards by both entrances to the school, a smaller poster to be handed out by teachers at the up coming Parents Evening and a A3 copy of the poster to be put on display by the tea/coffee station at Parents evening
