The council also have an emergency fund; this is for people in crisis, for example if you have no money for food or fuel. You can apply for this here.
We also have a Parents' Voice group where you can find out about the latest developments, meet governors and raise concerns. The next meeting is Friday 4th Feb at 9.30 (after assembly) and the meeting will run again on zoom the following Tuesday at 8pm. At this meeting Governors want to seek opinions from parents about Headteacher recruitment. The meeting will also follow up on points raised at the last meetings, including actions the school has taken around improving behaviour in school. The notes from the last meetings are below.
Bridging Gaps are a group of women from school from different backgrounds who are interested in sharing their culture and learning about other cultures. In the past they have run training to help people to be more culturally aware and more confident to speak to people from different backgrounds. Their twitter account https://twitter.com/gapsbridging and this recent article from Bristol 247 give a flavour. https://www.bristol247.com/news-and-features/features/mini-library-set-up-by-parents-working-to-build-bridges-across-cultures/ Their flyer can be seen here and their training offer is here.
