Parents Forum Membership 2016 - 2017
What is the Parent Forum?
The Parent Forum is a group of parents who meet to discuss some questions raised by the school on different topics related to their child’s education.
Parent Forum members are invited to join in the discussions so we can try and ensure we have a wide range of representation; for example representation from mums and dads, different classes, religions and cultures, parents of children with special educational needs or more able pupils.
The Parent Forum is a place where parents can discuss their thoughts and ideas to help us strive for continuous improvement. It is a place where ideas, opinions and solutions are sought.
When does the Parent Forum meet?
The Parent Forum meet once a month on a Wednesday morning at 9.00am until 10.00am. They meet for a number of meetings at the beginning of the academic year. Then at the end of the school year they meet with Mrs Spencer so she can share actions taken by the school as a direct result of the ideas raised.
