Parent Forum meeting principles


What are the principles guiding the Forum?

You can count on the Parent Forum to be:

  • Collaborative: participating together for the benefit of the school community
  • Constructive: helping to identify effective solutions
  • Transparent: keeping everyone informed of meetings and their outcomes
  • Encouraging: welcoming ideas and initiatives to foster a positive ethos


Who can be part of the Forum? 

  • Each class will choose a class representative from parents and carers of children in the class. The Class representative will be a volunteer who acts as a liaison point between the school and parents on general issues.
  • In addition, a representative from the governors and the leadership team has

committed to attend each meeting.

What will the Parent Forum not do?

  • The Parent Forum is not a decision-making body. It is a body, which can feed in views and represent the parents and carers of issues surrounding the school.
  • The Parent Forum is also not the place to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff.


Why should parents & carers take part?

  • As a parent or carer, being part of the Forum can help you in a number of ways:
    • It gives you an opportunity to get together on a regular basis with other Class Representatives to share parents views on what the school is doing well, and ideas of how things could be improved.
    • It can help sharing of advice and support to help and encourage children with their learning
    • It can break down barriers between the school and parents and improve working relationships.


How can Parents & Carers participate?

  • Put yourself forward to be a Class Representative
  • Suggest items to be discussed at meetings.

We want to ensure a positive and respectful environment and we want those who attend the meetings to abide by the following code of conduct:

  • Listen to others’ views and welcome diversity of opinions
  • Treat speakers with respect
  • Act courteously
  • Contribute & participate
  • Avoid naming individual members of the school community
