The Gosport and Fareham Multi Academy Trust is fully committed to prioritising opportunities which enable our pupils to develop resilience, feel confident and be aspirational throughout their time within our schools.
Continuing to build on the success of our Parent Conferences in 2019 we have furthered our work with parents, carers and the wider community, to raise the life chances and improve the future of all our families in Gosport.
We are therefore delighted to announce a number of parental conferences this term, which we hope will be of interest to you.
We look forward to welcoming all of our primary and secondary parents, to all GFM events this academic year and we thank you for your ongoing, continued support. Should you wish to suggest an idea for a future event or would like to contribute personally to our Friends of GFM forum please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
