Parents’ meetings: draft statutory guidance to the governing bodies of maintained schools in Wales regarding the duty to hold meetings with parents

The School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Bill provides for new arrangements whereby parents may petition up to 3 meetings a year with a school governing body.
Start of consultation: 04/02/2013
End of consultation: 22/03/2013

These new arrangements replace the current arrangements for annual parents' meetings.

When carrying out their functions in relation to holding meetings with parents under these new arrangements, the Bill provides that school governing bodies must have regard to guidance given by the Welsh Ministers. This consultation seeks views on that  proposed statutory guidance.
