Information: Structural roles are voted upon at the first Friends of InSPE meeting of the academic year and subsequent meetings are held approximately once a month. At these times agendas are issued prior to the meeting taking place, accurate minutes taken and then are emailed to all parents. Up-coming events are advertised both within the school and also externally if they are open to non-InSPE families. Working groups or committees are set up to help plan, run and evaluate events or activities which are organised by the Friends of InSPE. There are 3 core activities or events which are an integral part of the school and therefore organised every year. The Friends of InSPE decides other events in keeping with the Friends of InSPE aims. Typical activities which have been organised at previously include monthly coffee mornings, a winter fair, egg hunt, weekly aerobic sessions for parents and also a wine taste evening.
