Margaret Wix Primary School

Excellence, Creativity, Individuality!

Parent/Carer Forum

What is the Parent/Carer 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 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 at Margaret Wix Primary School is welcome to join any parent forum meeting.  At times other members of the school community will also attend the meetings depending on the agenda items and what the school feels they would like to share with the 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?

 

Every half term for about an hour.  Each term the Parent Forum meeting will be held at different times to try to enable as many different parents to attend who wish to.

 

What will be discussed at the meetings?

 

Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between the school and parents.  The meetings will be informal and are on opportunity for an open discussion.  It is not the forum to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff.

 

How can I raise an issue?

 

Communicate it with your class representative or attend the meeting
