Parent Forum

The Parent Forum is an informal termly meeting, open to all parents and carers.

Regular, open communication and consultation with parents is really important to the school.  We have an excellent and supportive partnership between home and school.   The Parent Forum provides the opportunity for you to share your ideas and opinions with us, helping to make sure the needs of children and their families are met.  We would like as many parents possible to be involved to give a cross-section of opinions and a good representation for our families.

Please note that all issues, whether you raise them yourself or on behalf of other parents, should be general issues, not related to a specific child or incident. If you have specific concerns about your child, your first point of contact should always be your child's class teacher.

Meetings are the chance for an open discussion between parents about various school-related matters.

It is a great opportunity for parents/carers to work alongside the school and contribute to the development of new policies, procedures and get involved in other decision-making, which affects the whole school.

If you have not attended before and are interested in joining us, please don’t hesitate to come along to the next meeting.

Parents and carers are also invited to​ join the Parent Forum Facebook group - this is a private group and another way of you sharing your ideas and opinions:

Future dates and agendas will be posted on the weekly newsletter, the dedicated Facebook page and sent out via ParentMail and 

The Impact You Have Made So Far:

You Said…

…So We Listened and…

Your children would like the choice of topic based, non-core homework…

…Introduced half-termly optional homework grids linked to the children’s topics in class.

Your children would respond well to an online homework system…

…Subscribed to Mathletics and Spellodrome online learning platform and updated the Homework Policy.

The outdoor areas would benefit from imaginative opportunities rather than sports equipment…

…Worked with the children to plan, apply for and install an outdoor stage, outdoor classroom and willow dens.

The timing of meetings/workshop/performances is difficult for some parents…

…Sent out a survey to see which times suited the majority of parents and provided a greater choice of days/times for parents’ evenings.

A Parental Code of Conduct would be useful and well-received…

…Sent the copy, drafted and approved by you, home with children to share with their parents/carers.

Some children struggle with the increased formality as they move through Year 1…

…Reception and Year 1 have undertaken the Step Into Quality mark, enabling them to make positive changes.  Key Stage Leaders introduced new transition activities across school, to help children settle into their new classes.
