The Parent Forum is a body of parents/carers who represent the parents of children in each class/year group at Maple Tree Primary School. It provides an opportunity for parents/ carers to put forward the views of parents to the Senior Leadership Team of the school in a meaningful and purposeful manner with the aim of strengthening the school community. The Parent Forum is not intended to address individual issues or concerns. Instead, it seeks to discuss more general issues and identify solutions in a spirit of mutual respect.
The Parent Forum works in partnership with the school:
- To promote and enhance communication between the school and the parent body;
- To facilitate a mechanism, outside of the annual parent questionnaire, for the parent body to provide suggestions and feedback to the SLT
- To help develop a meaningful partnership between parents and the school to support the education and welfare of all pupils at Maple Tree.
Meetings of the Parent Forum will be conducted in a positive spirit, be constructive, informative and solution focused.
If you wish to be considered for the Parent Forum, firstly, check that there is not already a representative for your child's class and then email the office to put your name forward. You will be contacted by the Deputy Head, Miss Hyde, in due course.
Please see the document below for the Parent Forum Terms of Reference and Code of Conduct.
