We have a very active Parent Forum. Each year group has a representative on the Parent Forum, working as a link between the head teacher and all parents in the school. Parents will be notified of the themes that are being explored at the meetings through the fortnightly newsletter or the class representative.
Now that the COVID restrictions have eased we will be resuming our Parent Forum after half term.
The current members are:
- Year R vacancy and vacancy
- Year 1 vacancy and vacancy
- Year 2 vacancy and vacancy
- Year 3 Sam Lawton, Katherine Elphick and Laura Donlon
- Year 4 Holli Thomas and vacancy
- Year 5 Davinia Skinner and Jo Harris
- Year 6 Fiona Philip and Sonja Phipps
