Parental Forum

The purpose of our Newland Forum is for regular, open communication and consultation; this is highly valued at Newland School for Girls and one of our fundamental aims is to work in partnership with our parents. The parent forum aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of students and their families. It facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors. The forum works to provide feedback on provision, offer a parent’s perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.

Main Aims

  • To support and promote children’s learning
  • To help the school embrace parents and carers thoughts about important issues
  • To involve parents and carers actively in school decisions

The parent forum’s membership is made up of parents and carers of children attending Newland School for Girls. We aim to have diverse representatives from a variety of year groups. Members of the senior leadership team also attend meetings. Parent forum meetings are held every term. The agenda is will be prepared in advance of the meeting and circulated by email to give you an opportunity to consider your and your daughter’s needs and views.

Would you like to become a member of our parental forum and help us on our journey to outstanding?
