Parent Forum

What is the Parent Forum?

The Parent Forum is open to all parents to attend to discuss school-related issues.

Regular, open communication and consultation with parents is really important to the school. The Parent Forum provides a valuable way to listen to your ideas and concerns and seek your views, helping to make sure the needs of children and their families are met.

Meetings are led by a member of the school Senior Leadership Team. Meetings are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion.

Examples of issues that have been discussed include:

  • Reporting
  • Target setting
  • Parents’ Evenings
  • School communication

How often does it meet?

The New Mills School Parent Forum meets once a half term and the dates can be found on the school calendar

Who can get involved?

If you have a child in Year 7-13 you can get involved.

Meetings are advertised through Parentmail, the school website and Facebook and Twitter.
