Parent Voice

The contribution of parents to the development of the school and to the sharing of ideas about what the school does well and what it could do to improve its provision for students is very important. There are a number of ways in which parents can share their views and ideas:

  • Contact (speak to or e-mail) the Headteacher directly
  • Send an email to the school office
  • Talk to a parent governor (see Governors Page)
  • Complete the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire
  • Complete our Annual Parent Survey
  • Join our Parents’ Forum (to be established in Autumn 2021)
  • Attend one of our termly Headteacher’s Coffee Mornings (to resume in Autumn 2021)
  • Raise a complaint either verbally or in writing

Annual Parent Survey

Every year, we issue a survey to families to seek parents’ views about the school. The survey aims to seek views across three broad categories of the school’s work:

  • The School in general (based on OfSTED’s questionnaire)
  • Communication / Parental Involvement
  • Reporting your child’s progress

The governors and Senior Leadership Team will use the responses from the survey to determine the key suggestions from parents and their key concerns.  This, in turn, will be used to contribute to school development plans and routines for the following year.

The 2021 Parent Survey is now closed. Responses will be analysed and shared in the Autumn Term.

Parents’ Forum

In the Autumn Term 2021, we are looking to establish a Forest Hill School Parents’ Forum. This will be an informal group where parents can share ideas, views and concerns, and make suggestions for improvement. The aim of the forum will be to:

  • Work together to improve the education provided for the students
  • Share information, knowledge and skills
  • Further improve communications between parents/carers and staff/governors

Further details about how the Parents’ Forum will be established and how often it will meet will be agreed in due course.
