Year 10&11 Historians visited the Houses of Parliament. We had a great time and learnt a lot. For example, the New Dawn commemorates women’s suffrage. It's colours change with the tide of the Thames. pic.twitter.com/ZX7pq4H7KR

30th NOVEMBER PARENTS MEETING - VIEW ONLINE

Tuesday 28th November 2023

Update on meeting with Baroness Barran

Unfortunately, the DFE has requested that the meeting this coming Thursday be moved online. Baroness Barran, the minister responsible for school facilities, has unexpectedly been called to a debate at the House of Lords late on Thursday afternoon and the only way she can make the meeting is if it is virtual.

We did emphasise our preference that the DFE meeting be in person, as we know that is what parents desired. But sadly, that is not possible.

As a result, all the panellists will be online and a link will be sent round for parents to join at the same time of 7pm until 8pm. There will be a facility to input questions.

While this is disappointing and not what we had hoped for, it is critical to the Trust that our parents are provided a forum to put their questions to the DFE. The meeting on Thursday will still provide that opportunity. Baroness Barran will be accompanied by John Edwards, a DFE Director General, and local MP Robert Halfon, who is also a DFE Minister (although school facilities are not his brief).

For those parents who have booked, and wish to do so, we are still inviting you to come onsite this Thursday evening from 6:30 to meet with myself and other members of the senior leadership team so you can speak to me in person and see the facilities, including the latest improvements. We will then have a provision for parents to watch the meeting onsite and ask questions which I will then put to the Minister live. I will then be around to speak to parents afterwards.

This will likely be an MS Teams Live Event and we shall share a link for dialling-in in the coming days for those who won’t be joining us in person. We shall do this once we are provided with the link by the DFE.

While the change of format is frustrating, we remain committed to ensuring all parents can put their questions to the Minister and see the SFG site, I hope this solution will allow for this. As ever, we are doing our best for you and the pupils of SFG.

Many thanks

Ms. Helena Mills CBE
CEO, BMAT Education
