Parent groups

Consultative Committee with Parents (CCwP)

The CCwP is a forum that gives parents from across the city the chance to discuss citywide and national issues with members of our staff and other groups.

The CCwP meets four times a year. Agendas and papers are sent out one week before the meetings. Each agenda is planned by four parents from the CCwP.

Parent members are chosen at the meetings of the locality groups and citywide special schools group.
