 Parents' Forum

 What is a Parents’ Forum?

A meeting in which parents, governors and staff can share and talk about matters of school interest.

 What a Parents’ Forum isn’t…

It is not a place to discuss concerns about an individual child or member of staff.

 Why a Parents’ Forum?

 We all want to provide the best possible outcomes for our children.

 Aims of the Forum

  • To discuss school related issues.
  • To develop open communication and consultation between parents, staff and governors.
  • To listen to ideas
  • To seek views
  • Check we are meeting pupil / parent needs
  • To present information about general matters.

See our Calendar for dates and times of the next meeting.
