Join us and be part of the discussion on how to develop and improve our school.
What is a Parent Forum?
The Parent Forum is a partnership between parents and the school. It is valuable way to share ideas, views, concerns and make suggestions for improvement.
The aim of the Parent Forum is to:
- Work together to improve the education provided for our children
- Share information, knowledge and skills
- Meet in a mutually supportive environment
- Further improve communication between parent/carers and staff/governors
Who can be part of the Parent Forum?
Any parent is welcome to join the Parent Forum meetings. The Forum will be chaired by Mrs Vladev and/or Mrs Turner - Family Worker. At other times other members of the school staff may attend as part of an information session.
Why should I be part of the Parent Forum?
It gives you an opportunity to get together on a regular basis with other parents to have a say on what is going well at school and to also offer suggestions on how we could improve things.
There will be opportunities to get advice and support to help your child/children with their learning.
How often will the Parent Forum meet?
Every half term for an hour.
What will be discussed at the meetings?
Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between school and parents. The meetings will be informal and are often an opportunity for an open discussion. Minutes of the meetings will be taken, and these will be accessible on the school’s website.
What will not be discussed at the meetings?
Concerns or complaints involving children, families or members of staff. These issues should be raised with the class teacher, Deputy head or Head teacher in a confidential meeting.
How can I make a suggestion or raise a question?
Mention it to the Family Worker (Mrs Angela Turner), or send a question before the scheduled meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org highlighting that it is a Parent Forum question.
