Parental Forum

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at Newland School for Girls. 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 find out what parents and carers think about important issues

  • To involve parents and carers actively in school decisions

  • To make plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children. 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.
