What is a Parent Forum?
The Parent Forum is an opportunity for groups of parent representatives to meet once a term to discuss school-related issues. Regular, open communication and consultation with parents is really important to the school. The Parent Forum provides a valuable way to listen to your ideas and concerns and seek your views, helping to make sure the needs of children and their families are met.
Meetings are led by senior school staff and, on occasions, governors. Meetings are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion. All parents are invited to the Parent Forums and parents are given opportunities to suggest agenda items in advance of the Parent Forum meeting.

Following a Parent Forum meeting the minutes will be produced and published on the school website.
