We held the first meeting of our new Parent Forum on Wednesday at Deansfield. Each of the schools in our Trust will have up to two parent representatives on the Forum. As well as having parents on our local governing bodies, we have established this Forum as a mechanism to gain feedback at a Trust level from the parents of our school communities. We used the first meeting, which was also attended by our Chair of Trustees Mary Whitehead, to establish how the Forum would work, what topics our parents wanted to cover, and how they would seek feedback and views from their school communities. Our parent volunteers made some enlightening and thought-provoking contributions to the meeting and we are very much looking forward to working with them over the course of the year.
