Parents' Forum

The Parent Forum ensures that parent views are heard on a range of subjects and that any new initiatives are discussed in advance, for suggestions on how to make the school the best it can be for our children. .


What is the Parent Forum?

The Parent Forum is a body of parents, representing parents. Parent Forums are one of the most rapid and effective means of consulting with parents on a variety of issues.


 Examples of issues that could be discussed include:

- New initiatives

- Parking and safe routes to walk/cycle to school

- School trips and events

- Parents’ evenings format

- Views on school policies when they are updated e.g. Behaviour Policy


The Parent Forum:

1. Is a constructive tool with which the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team may consult the parent body.

2. Is a conduit to feed information from the school to parents and from parents to the school.

3. Has an advisory and consultative role. The Governing Body remains the decision maker and provides strategic leadership.

4. Any parent may nominate themselves to become a member of the forum. Ideally each class will have one representative. Nominations for members will be invited in the Autumn Term and during the year when a vacancy arises. Elections will only be held in cases where nominations are received from more than one parent for a class.

5. The forum will aim to meet at least half-termly. Meetings are held in the evenings and are scheduled to run for about an hour.

6. The forum will be attended by myself and Community Leader (Mrs Jenny Shaw).

7. 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.
