The Parent Forum is your opportunity to discuss key aspects of the school with the school leaders. All parents are welcome to attend.
The aim of the forum is to provide a means of communication between school and home for the betterment of the children's education.
April 2017 - the notion of "parent ambassadors" is being looked into by a working party of staff and parents, to see if this would further improve our school/home communications.
28.3.17 Parents Meetings Surveys = "Perfect School Vision"/ Thank you so very much for all the responses we had, asking you what you would see in the classrooms, at lunchtime and after school in a perfect vision of Coppice Valley. We are in the process of collating over 70 responses. We will share the results with you as soon as the data is processed, and combined with the visions of the children, governors and staff.
17.3.17 We did not receive any suggestions for Parent Forums via email. We have put a suggestions box in the entrance with suggestions slips for you to leave us your ideas about school improvement, or to give us your positive feedback about what we are doing well. Thank you very much for the kind comments already posted; it really "makes our day " when you let us know how we are getting it right for your children and inspires us to try even harder.
27.2.17 What would you like the next Parent Forum to be about?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas for the next Parent Forum.
13.01.17 Topic - After and Lunch School Clubs
Thank you to the parents who attended the forum this morning. Various ideas for clubs were raised and the practicalities of running clubs, from the school's position, (financial implications, staff having the right skills/qualifications and time) was explained. School and parents are of the same mind; that we want our children to have access to good quality sports clubs after school. It was agreed that a letter should go out to parents asking what clubs their children would like, whether parents had any contact with professionals who could run these clubs and whether they would be prepared to pay for them.
9.12.16: Topic- Homework - how can we improve homework?
There were no parent attendees on the day, though some views were expressed to a teacher in advance of the meeting by a parent who could not attend. The outcome of the discussion was an agreement to discuss in staff meetings the current format for maths homework in KS2, and the use of daily spelling and maths practice time in class for pupils who have already learned their homework.
