What is the Parent Forum?

The Parent Forum is a partnership between parents and carers and the school. It is a valuable way to share ideas, express views and learn more about how the school operates in a relaxed and mutually supportive environment.

Who can be part of the parent forum?

Any parent/carer of children currently at Hackleton CEVA Primary School is welcome to join any parent forum meeting.  The forum will be chaired by either the headteacher or deputy headteacher.  At times other members of the school community may 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 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 full term for about an hour.  Each term the Parent Forum meeting will be held at a different time and on a different day to try to enable as many parents as possible to attend.

What will be discussed at the meetings?

Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between the school and parents.  Although an agenda will be made available prior to the meeting, the meetings will be informal and are an opportunity for open discussion.  Minutes of the meetings will be taken and these will be emailed out to all parents and made available on the school's website as soon as possible after the meeting.

It is not the forum to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff.

How can I raise an issue?

Come to the meeting and bring it up during the open discussion.  If you are unable to attend send an email to the school office and it will raised at the meeting.
