  • We want to respond quickly to any concerns that you may have.

Parent Forum – Have Your Say

As the school’s Parent Partnership Lead, I would like to further develop the links between school and parents. There will be a parent forum each term to discuss questions raised at the previous forum and to address new questions that have been emailed to the office.

The aim of these sessions will be to discuss issues that impact on the day to day running of the school and any concerns that you may have as parents or carers.

These sessions will be open to all parents or carers who have regular interaction with the school – they are not to be used for personal grievances that need to be discussed more confidentially.

Our core values are Achievement, Aspirations, Responsibility and Community – all of which can be successfully achieved when we work together.

I look forward to meeting you all and developing an improved relationship with the community.
