Welcome to Parent Forum at Ark Evelyn Grace

"For the students, by the Parents"

What is a Parent Forum: 

A Parent Forum is a body of parents and carers, which represents parents and carers and provides a forum for them to put forward their views to the School. The Parent Forum is representative of all parents and carers in the school community and is an inclusive and accessible way to involve parents and carers in decisions about the School.

It is a forum through which parents and carers can be consulted, learn more about the School and how they can be involved in it, be provided with information and encouraged to network with others parents and carers.  Involvement in the Parent Forum is an informal way for parent to feel involved in our School community.

Functions of the Parent Forum: 

The Parent Forum has a consultative and advisory role; it is a means to strengthen the voice of parents and carers and to enable them to express their opinions and influence students’ achievements. Parents and carers are a driving force behind their children’s progress, but also for improving the School system as a whole.

The Parent Forum gives parents and carers a route to express their opinions and ideas about the School.  Involvement in the Parent Forum is an opportunity to generate a culture of genuine participation and to attempt to reach all parents and carers of all backgrounds.
