Our Parents’ Voice meetings are held at least once a term with Mrs Wilkinson. They provide an opportunity to find out more about the school and have a discussion about school issues.
Each year group in school has a representative who listens to views and opinions from parents and puts them forward at meetings.
The Parents’ Voice group has influenced many positive changes to the school and contributions from parents are highly valued. Any parent or carer is welcome to raise issues, concerns or positive feedback via one of the representatives or by email/text to the school office.
The terms of reference for Parents’ Voice are:
- To build good relationships between the parents and the school.
