We have several internal Council Working Groups which focus on making improvements and sharing expertise on specific topics, including canteens, uniform shops, before and after school care and community partnerships. Some meet regularly, others communicate via email. Anyone is free to join. To nominate for a working group, use this form.
Our regular meetings are also an excellent way to meet others working in P&Cs and learn more about what other P&Cs do to enhance their schools.
