Parent Forum

Thorndown Parent Forum

 Parent Forum

It is important to the School and the Governing Body that parents are involved in school life. So we are delighted to announce that we have set up a Parent Forum. This is run by parents with the support of the school and provides an excellent opportunity for parents to come together, share ideas and put forward their views on whole school issues such as homework, school lunches, travel plan etc. The Forum has an advisory and consultative role with the Head and a representative from the Governing Body always being present.

The Parent Forum will not be a place for  personal issues and concerns – these can be dealt with by speaking to the school directly.

If you would like to submit an agenda item or contact:

Mrs Wood – Chair of the Parent Forum
