Admission Policy Guidance
We are looking to improve our admission policy guidance. As part of this, I am very pleased to announce that Cardiff Council Admissions Team will be hosting focus group workshops with the goal of improving our Admission to Schools guidance document for parents. We have arranged five focus groups around Cardiff over the coming weeks and I kindly request that the letter attached to this email be sent to all parents to invite them. We would also appreciate if you can distribute the message via your own distribution channels (text, email, in person) – We are unable to do so due to GDPR constraints. If these workshops are successful, we will produce more accessible information for parents and schools and reduce stress/anxiety of parents and school admission teams – The best way to achieve this is to work together.
The goal is to understand the views of parents around admission policy guidance. This is not a workshop on admission arrangements, catchment areas or school appeals. We hope to capture the views of those who are under-represented and can be challenging to engage, but all parents and staff are welcome to attend. Please refer to the attached letter for a better understanding of the workshop content.
The workshops will be held on:
· Wednesday July 4th, 9:00AM, Ninian Park Primary School
· Wednesday July 4th, 4:30PM, Ysgol Gymraeg Nant Caerau
· Monday July 9th, 4:30PM, Mount Stuart Primary School
· Tuesday July 10th, 4:30PM, Rhydypenau Primary School
· Wednesday July 11th, 4:30PM, Rumney Primary School
Parents must register their interest by email (Courtney.firstname.lastname@example.org) and could you please inform me if they require Welsh support at the event.
