Parent Voice

Purpose

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at St.Winifred’s Primary School. The Parent Voice Group 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 and staff and governors. The group 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.  The role of the Parent Forum is consultative and advisory. The Governing Body and Headteacher remains the decision maker of the school and provides strategic leadership.

The group 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 Deputy Headteacher/Headteacher.

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 fully in the development of the school
  • To make plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children

All meetings take place on a Monday afternoon at 2.15pm in the mobiles and these are held once each term.

Membership

The Parent Voice membership is made up of parents  attending St.Winifred’s Primary School. We aim to have one representatives per class. T Hanvey and Mrs O’Dwyer will also be present.

The St.Winifred’s Parent Voice group are now recruiting Parent Voice Representatives for Reception classes 1 and 2 and classes 4, 10 and 12.
