Parent Voice

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued. The 'parent voice' 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 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.

The group currently meets in the school library / resources centre, Wednesdays from 6pm to 7pm.

The first Parent Voice meeting for this academic year will be on Thursday 22nd November at 6pm.   A letter will follow shortly with results of the recent parent survey results.

The Parent Voice has a dedicated email address - please email your questions to the forum or if you wish to learn more at parentvoice@weyvalley.dorset.sch.uk
