FUTURE PARENTS’ MEETINGS

The Schools Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 (The Act) removed the requirement for school governing bodies to hold an annual meeting with parents. Instead, new arrangements were introduced to enable parents to request up to 3 meetings in any school year with a governing body, on matters which are of concern to them.

If parents wish to use their rights under the Act to hold a meeting, 4 conditions will need to be satisfied:

1. Parents (of at least 30 pupils) will need to raise a petition in support of holding a meeting.
2. The meeting must be called to discuss matters which affect the school
3. A maximum of 3 meetings can be held during the school year
4. There must be at least 25 school days left in the school year

Please contact the Clerk to the Governors on admin@emlyn.carms.sch.uk

Further details of the conditions can be found here GB Meeting called by Parents.docx
