Parent Voice

Aims:

  • to give a voice to parents and carers.
  • to encourage open, effective communication between parents/carers, pupils, staff and governors.
  • to work in partnership with the School to create a welcoming school that is inclusive for all parents/carers.
  • to identify and represent the views of the parents/carers on matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.
  • to promote opportunities for parents/carers to engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils.

The Parent Voice is:

  • a mechanism through which parents'/carers' questions, concerns, suggestions and ideas can be raised to the school leadership and/or governing body.
  • managed by a member of staff alongside a group of parents with representation from all key stages within the school who meet once a term to discuss school-related issues

The Parent Voice will not:

  • discuss issues relating to individual pupils or parents/carers.
  • discuss issues relating to individual staff.
  • organise fundraising or social activities.
