The Parent Forum

As a parent/carer of a child at this school you are automatically a member of the Parent Forum.

The Parent Forum is composed of all the parents and carers of children at the school.

As a member of the Parent Forum you can expect to:

 

  • get information about what your child is learning
  • get information about events and activities at the school
  • get advice/help on how you can support your child’s learning
  • be told about opportunities to be involved with in the school
  • have a say in selecting a Parent Council to work on behalf of all parents at the school
  • be invited to identify issues for the Parent Council to work on with the school.

 

Parent Councils came into force on 1 August 2007. The Parent Council’s rights and duties include:

  • supporting the work of the school
  • representing the views of parents/carers
  • consulting with parents and reporting back to the Parent Forum on matters of interest
  • promoting contact between the school, parents, pupils and the wider community
  • fundraising
  • taking part in the selection of senior promoted staff
  • receiving reports from the head teacher and education authority
  • receiving an annual budget for administration, training and other expenses

Members of Parent Councils, on a voluntary basis, may also have an advisory role in decisions on placing requests by parents in respect of those situations where the number of placing requests for a particular school or for a particular stage in a particular school exceeds the number of places available. The Parent Forum will determine the composition of the Parent Council. The head teacher is the professional adviser to the Parent Council.
