Welcome to the Townley Grammar School’s Parent Focus Group (PFG) webpage.

The PFG seeks to be:

  • A consultative group representing the parents’ voice
  • A forum for the school to seek advice and opinion from parents
  • A forum where parents can bring questions to the school
  • A mechanism for bilateral communication

The PFG was established in 2012 and its members are representative of every year group across the school.  In recent meetings the forum has discussed: reporting to parents; the school website; parents’ evenings; homework; assessment without levels and ways to engage with the wider parental population, amongst other topics.

With this final point in mind, the school has provided this page on the website, along with an opportunity for parents to submit questions on matters to be discussed. Prior to each meeting, a key topic for discussion will be shared on this page and all parents are invited to send in questions or points to be considered during the discussion via the inbox parentfocusgroup@townleygrammar.org.uk. Following each meeting the school will share feedback on this topic to parents via this web page.

Please note, the PFG inbox address should only be used to submit questions or responses to the key topic being discussed. You will receive a standard, automated reply as confirmation that the PFG has received your submission but you will not receive a personal response. Any urgent, individual or personal concerns should be raised with the school using the appropriate channels.

Please visit this page regularly, to keep up to date with the work of the PFG.
