What is 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 are led by school staff, usually by the Headteacher. Meetings are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion.
Examples of issues that have been discussed include:
- Parking and safe routes to walk / cycle to school
- Cost of school trips and events
- Parents evenings
- Views on school policies when they are updated e.g. Behaviour Policy
Sharing the information....
Parents are encouraged to share information from Parent Forum with parents of other children in their child’s class. 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 email the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will pass on your message. 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.
