What is Parent Forum

What is the Parent Forum?


The Parent Forum is a partnership between parents, governors and the school. It is a valuable way to share ideas, views, concerns and make suggestions for improvement. 


The aims of the Parent Forum will be to:

  • work together to improve the education provided for our children

  • share information, knowledge and skills

  • meet in a mutually supportive environment

  • further improve communications between parent/carers and staff/governors


How often will the Parent Forum meet?

Every half-term for about an hour.

What will be discussed at the meetings?

Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between the school and parents. The meetings are 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 individual children, families or members of staff. These issues should be raised with the Class Teacher or Assistant Headteacher in a confidential meeting as outlined in our meeting with parents policy.
