Education is always more successful
when a school works with parents and carers. We are always
keen to hear your views. The school holds a Parents' Forum
meeting every half-term, where you can discuss your views with us
over a cup of coffee.
Regular consultation with parents
is really important to us and the Parents' Forum provides a
valuable way for you to communicate and for us to listen to your
ideas and concerns, seek your views and ensure we are meeting the
needs of our pupils.
There is an open invitation to all
parents to attend the Parents' Forum. Meetings will take
place between 5.30pm - 6.30pm.
If you would like to attend a
Parents' Forum, please contact Mrs Nicola Cooke on
0161 445 8053 or email firstname.lastname@example.org -
please request any items/issues that you would like us to add
to the agenda.

with parents by improving communication.

discussed at the forum include:
