Parent and Carer Forum


For those of you who are new to the idea of a Parent and Carer Forum, it is a group of adults linked to the school who meet with the Headteacher to address an area of school improvement and to aid the school moving forward by giving another perspective. The Parent and Carer Forums are held during the school day every term and are open to all parents and carers that are involved in the school. School staff and Governors can also attend. Each term, an invite will be sent to all via the school's newsletter and those interested in joining the Headteacher will be able to sign up thorough a link on the school website. The Parent and Carer Forum also enables the Headteacher an opportunity to keep parents and carers informed about the life of the school. We discuss any items that affect our school which will make a positive improvement.

The main functions of your Parent and Carer Forum is to:

> Support the school in its work with pupils and parents/carers

> Represent the views of parents/carers

> Promote contact and communication between the school, parents, carers, pupils and the community

Our Parent and Carer Forum started in January 2019 which replaced our Parent Council which was established in December 2016.
