It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Much more visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not! The trips that Mrs Glover & Mrs Sear have been putting together are a fantastic idea and hope they continue. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Senior & middle leaders know the strengths of their staff & deploy them accordingly. More tailored support for different groups of learners has been a really big & positive change. Thank you! The Headteacher has a clear vision for the school & her ambition for it to continue to make improvements is shared by her senior team & staff.

Parents' Forum

Parents Forum Dates for 2019-2020

 

The first meeting will be on Friday 4th October, 2pm-3pm.

Mrs Mayhew and Mrs Frith are now leading  on this work representing the school working with our fantastic parents and carers.  The forum has been running for over five years and has been very important in helping us provide an even stronger partnership between home and school.  The school is very grateful to those who volunteer for the forum and for the time they are willing to give to help us work together for the benefit of the children. 

 

Our Parents' Forum is a group which:

 

no  enables parents to meet, share ideas and feed back to the school

no  gives parents a voice and enables them to contribute to school decision making

no  helps develop a partnership between parents and school

no  consults parents and advises the governing body of parents’ views       

 

When the forum meets we discuss the minutes from the previous meeting and actions that have happened as a consequence, an agenda item raised by the school, then others points parents bring to the meeting, either from their own experience or that have been raised through them by other parents who are not on the forum.

 

All issued raised are then discussed at leadership level and action taken as appropriate. The main areas of discussion are:

  • Communication

  • Administration

  • Catering

  • School policies

Premises and procedures

 

We do not discuss items relating to specific pupils, specific parents or individual school staff. These matters should be discussed one to one with the relevant teacher or year group leader initially and referred to SLT if appropriate.

 

If you have an issue that you would like raised by the parent’s forum there are various ways of doing this:

 

  • Offer to join the forum
  • Speak to one of the current parent forum members who will ensure the issue is raised at the next meeting if it meets the parent’s forum criteria.
  • Write the issue on a piece of paper and place it into the suggestions golden box on the desk in the school reception.
  • Email Parent’s forum using the email address below. Emails sent will be discussed at the next forum meeting if they meet the forum criteria. Emails will not be responded to, but you will see the item on the agenda of the next meeting.

 

Any urgent issues, or issues that do not meet the remit of the parent’s forum should be discussed with a member of staff, either the child’s teacher, or the year group leader initially.

 

To email parent’s forum please make sure you have read the above, and then use the following address:

 

Parentforum@cliftonville.kent.sch.uk – these emails will only be collected the day before the parent’s forum meeting. Issues will be discussed at the forum, and will be noted on the minutes. Please refer to the minutes to see the response.

 

We meet once a term to facilitate positive and effective two way communication between parents and the school. Our aim is that all members of our school community have a voice which is heard and respected.

 

Please speak to these people if you have any ideas for the future which you think would help us to help your children, or if you have any concerns about what we do now that do not need to be resolved immediately.

 

Any comments will be discussed at the next forum meeting.

 

Thank you.
