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 improvement.
The aims of the Parent Forum are 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 forum is an opportunity for parents to get together on a regular basis with other parents, a school representative (Miss Oakenfull) and a governor representative (Mrs Church) to share views on what the school is doing well, and suggest ideas on how things could be improved.
How often will the Parent Forum meet?
Between 3 and 6 times a year for about an hour. If necessary, we will vary the times that Parent Forums are held to try and enable as many parents to attend as possible.
What will be discussed at Parent Forum meetings?
Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between the school and parents. The meetings will be informal and are an opportunity for an open discussion. Minutes of the meetings will be taken and these will be accessible on the website.
What is the Parent Forum not for?
It is not the forum to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff, this should be brought to the attention of the appropriate staff member at an alternative time.
If you are interested in being part of the HFJS Parent Forum please send a message to email@example.com expressing your interest and Miss Oakenfull will be in contact.
