What? A virtual ‘coffee morning’ for all parents across the whole academy to log into to a MS Teams event hosted by a KSA leader with a conversation topic to get started.

Why? Build community links with parents and key stakeholders in the school – offer parents an opportunity to ‘meet’ other parents and share knowledge etc with support from KSA leaders.

How? The first part of the meeting will start with an update and Q&A from a school leader. There will then be an open forum to chat (using chat function) and speak with audio and video.

Time? 9:30 - 10:15am

*an MS Teams link will be sent to all parents prior to each Coffee Morning
