Parent Forum



Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at St, Patrick's R.C. Primary School. The Parents' Forum aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. It facilitates communication between parents, carers, staff and governors.


This takes place by:

  • Regular communication with parents and carers
  • Ensuring a diverse forum membership and representation of views from parents and carers.  


The forum is not in place to address specific concerns about an individual child or issues relating to individual members of staff. Parents who need to discuss these issues should approach their class teacher or the Headteacher in the usual way.


What are the objectives of the Parents' Forum?

The objectives of the Parents' Forum is to facilitate positive and effective two way communication between parents / carers and the school, providing a channel for communication, feedback and suggestions for improvements.


Specifically to:

  • Promote partnership between staff, pupils, parents and carers.
  • Develop and promote ideas which support the education and welfare of the pupils and parents.
  • Identify and represent the view of the parents on matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.
