Parents' Forum

St Michael’s Parent Forum

Purpose

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at St Michael’s Primary School. The parent forum aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. It facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors. The forum works to

  1. provide feedback on provision

  2. offer a parent's perspective on current policy and practice

  3. provide input into decision making and planning for future provision.

This takes place by:

  • Regular communication with parents/carers

  • Ensuring a diverse forum membership and representation of all aspects of school life

The forum is not in place to address specific concerns about an individual child or issues relating to individual members of staff. Parents who need to discuss these issues should approach their class teacher or the Principal.

 

Main Aims

  • To ensure effective communication between home and school
  • To help the school find out what parents and carers think about important issues
  • To involve parents and carers actively in school decisions
  • To make plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children
  • To provide feedback on school policies and procedures
