What is a parent forum?

A parent & carer forum is where a representative group of parents and carers from across the school meet with a governor as chair, the Headteacher and, as required, relevant staff present, to seek views on a range of strategic issues relating to school life. Parent/carer members represent the views of parents at forum meetings and report back on the work of the forum as appropriate to parents/carers. It offers a wonderful opportunity to contribute to policy making and to play a part in improving childrens’ learning and experience at school. 


What does the forum not do?

It is important to note that the forum is not a decision-making body; it is there to gather, discuss and exchange views. It will not discuss anything relating to individual pupils, parents, carers or school staff; any such issues should be raised by the parent concerned with the relevant teacher, or Headteacher as appropriate. It is also not appropriate for specific complaints to be raised in the forum – it is important that any parent who has a complaint follows the school’s complaints procedure.
