Parent Council

What is the Parent Forum?

The Parent Forum is a group of parent representatives who meet once a term to discuss school-related issues.

Regular, open communication and consultation with parents is really important to the school. The Parent Forum provides a valuable way to listen to your ideas and concerns and seek your views, helping to make sure the needs of children and their families are met.

Meetings will be led by school staff; they are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion.

Sharing the Information

Parents are encouraged to share information from Parent Forum with parents of other children in their child’s class. Feedback will also be included in school newsletters which are distributed to all parents.

If you would like a parent representative to raise an issue or make a suggestion on your behalf at Parent Forum please ask them to do so, or send a message to the school office. Issues raised should be general issues. If you have specific concerns about your child your first point of contact should always be your class teacher.

Who is on the parent forum?

We currently have 11 parent volunteers on the forum with 6 attending our first meeting. We aim to have at least one parent representing each class, to give a range of views across children’s classes and year groups.

Any parent can volunteer to be on the Parent Forum, so please ask at the school office if you wish to become involved.

There will be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 meetings a year.
