Settling in Evening!

Posted at 9:00 am on 21st October, 2021

At Flixton Girls School (FGS) we aim to provide excellent parental communications and engagement with all members of our Flixton family. This is why hosting our year 7 ‘Settling in Event’ is a very important to us and the reassurance and continued communication process for both parents and students.

Due to limited face to face events, especially for this year group who transitioned from primary to secondary through the lockdown periods - we were able to provide a variety of staggered carousels including curriculum content, welfare, House systems and trip information. Maximising the forum for parental Q&A’s, whilst minimising group sizes and adhering to Public Health safety guidelines.

Parental feedback from the event included:

‘Fantastic night @FlixtonGS year 7 settling in night…the commitment and dedication of the staff shines through - even managed to with the Headteacher to talk about my time @FlixtonGS’

‘Your enrichment offer is incredible and leadership opportunities are really building my daughter’s confidence and the clubs are helping her to make lots of friends.  Thank you to all the teachers and staff that help to make this happen.’

‘Thank you for tonight’s opportunity – really nice to be in school and meet key adults. Much appreciated and very well organised!’

‘My daughter has settled in really well and is enjoying school.’

‘It was lovely to be able to speak directly to my daughters’ form tutor and pastoral staff.’

‘We really appreciate the efforts Flixton Girls School staff have gone to, to provide this face to face experience.;

‘The weekly videos and previous on-line meetings have been excellent but just being in the same room and bouncing questions around has really put my mind at rest.’

Mrs Trussell, Headteacher said, ‘It has been wonderful to finally meet more of our Flixton family members face to face! We appreciate everyone’s assistance in following the latest Public Health guidelines, which ensures we are able to provide this type of event and continue open communication between home and school. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch using the admin(at) email account, if you have any questions from this event or moving forward.’
