PARENTS’ FORUM

We recognise that a good working relationship with home and families is essential to ensuring the best progress for your child throughout their schooling. Your views as parents and carers matter to us and we recognise that your active participation in school life is crucial. Parents’ Forum is one of the communication tools that we are using to discuss School’s priorities and developments. 

WHAT IS THE PARENTS' FORUM?

The Parents' Forum meetings take place once a half-term, on a Tuesday evening from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. The meetings are open to all parents/carers and provide you with the opportunity to find out more about the school, discuss your ideas, concerns and suggestions in an informal environment. Parents’ Forum plays an important role in the strategic development of the school.  

Previous meetings have included topics such as keeping your child safe online, sample lessons, using the SIMS Learning Gateway, interpreting assessment data and much more! In July 2020 the virtual Parents’ Forum meeting with almost 30 parents offered invaluable advice to the school team while planning for the September re-opening.    

The programme aims to cover a wide range of aspects of the school and for the coming year the topics are noted below. It is important to us that we cover topics which are of use to you. Therefore, if there are any suggestions for other discussion points, we would welcome your feedback.
