Parents

Parent Forum

What is the Parent Forum?
The Parent Forum is a partnership between parents and the school. It is a valuable way to share ideas, views, concerns and make suggestions for school improvement.

 

The aims of the Parent Forum will be to:

  • Work together to improve the education provided for our children;
  • Share information, knowledge and skills;
  • Meet in a mutually supportive environment;
  • Further improve communications between parents/carers and staff/governors.

The Parent Forum does not have any statutory responsibilities, duties or powers in the school.

 
 

Who can be part of the Parent Forum?

 
Any parent/carer of children currently attending Perry Wood Primary and Nursery School is welcome to join any of the Parent Forum meetings. The Forum will be chaired by Mrs Munslow, AHT. At times, other members of staff and the school community will also attend meetings depending on the agenda items and what the school feels they would like to share with parents, such as new initiatives.
 

Why should I be part of the Parent Forum?

 
It gives you, the parent, an opportunity to get together on a regular basis with other parents to have your say on what the school is doing well and suggest ideas of how things could be improved.
 

How often will the Parent Forum meet?

 
The Parent Forum will meet once a term for about an hour. The Parent Forum will be held at different times in the day to try to enable as many different parents to attend who wish to. The school will work with parents to establish and evaluate the best times for meetings as we begin to meet more often in the coming year.
 

What will be discussed at the meetings?

 
Anything related to the school and further developing the partnership between school and parents. The meetings will be informal and are an opportunity for an open discussion. Minutes of the meeting will be accessible on the school website and other platforms. The Forum is not an opportunity to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff. These issues should be raised with the class teacher or Senior Leadership Team.
 

How can I further become involved in driving Parent Forum meetings?

 
We currently have two Parent Champions who you can approach and they will be happy to share your ideas on your behalf. If you would like to become a Parent Champion yourself, please contact Mrs Munslow, AHT, for more information.
