Parent Forum

We hold Parent Forum meetings termly to consult with our parents on key issues that affect school life. These meetings take place in the evenings in a relaxed atmosphere with refreshments provided, and parents are instrumental in helping to shape school policy. Meetings are well attended and parents’ views are clearly expressed and acted upon.

Our first meeting (in summer 2014) concerned the new curriculum and the approach that parents wanted to see for homework. Following the meeting, staff took these ideas and implemented a completely new style of homework. Subsequent feedback from parents, children and staff has been overwhelmingly positive.

The second meeting (November 2014) discussed the behavioural sanctions and rewards systems within school. Suggestions were made regarding the KS2 Respect Code. Following this, alternative systems were discussed with staff, a consultation on a new approach was carried out with all parents in early 2015, and new systems and procedures were then put in place.

There have also been discussions and subsequent policy change on Attendance and our approach to fixed penalty notices, and communication between home and school. 

The next meeting will be on Monday 19 October at 6.30pm in school. We will be discussing online safety and ways to protect children from various issues regarding cyberbullying, gaming and so on. Please come along – you will be very welcome and we look forward to hearing, and acting upon, your views.
