Write a letter to the headteacher giving your views as a parent.

Directed Writing

Essay Plan

The writer is a parent and they have read the two texts that the school has provided about the proposed repair café. They think that the environmental benefits of the café are very strong, and that the operational concerns raised by the second text can be overcome with careful planning. They think that the benefits of the café extend beyond environmental stewardship to include teaching students practical skills and promoting a sense of community. They think that the café could be a great way for staff to engage with students outside of the typical academic setting and that it could also be a focal point for communal interaction and learning for the wider community. The writer would like to see a trial period for the café before making any decisions.
