Aims of the Parent Forum

  • To provide a means of 2 way communication between parents, college staff and governors.
  • To provide the opportunity for the staff at the college to inform parents of new initiatives; to gather views on current and forthcoming initiatives; to explain policies and procedures and to receive honest feedback.
  • To provide parents with the opportunity to seek clarification and further information on all aspects of college life.
  • To provide parents with the opportunity to share their views on college life, but without raising individual issues.
  • Above all, to allow parents, college staff and governors to work together to provide the best possible experiences for our young people, for the present and for the future.


  • All parents are welcome to be part of the Parent Forum The aim is to have a group of parents/carers who are committed to attending all meetings (as far as possible) and who are representative of all year groups.
  • Meetings will be attended by college staff and at least one representative from the governing body.
  • Meetings will take place once every half term, on the 2nd Monday evening from 7-8pm. The aim is to start and finish promptly.
  • Agenda items will be decided, one meeting in advance, by staff and parents together.
  • Notes at the meetings will be taken by volunteer parents on a rotational basis. These will be sent to ES and then circulated to all parents via the Parent Forum distribution list and on Parentmail.
  • Each meeting will begin with a review of items, any progress from the previous meeting, as well as any feedback from governors.
