Parent Panel

Purpose and Aims of Brookdale Parent Panel

Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at Brookdale Primary School. The parent panel aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. It facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors. The forum works to provide feedback on provision, offer a parent's perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.

The forum is not in place to address specific concerns about an individual child or issues relating to individual members of staff. Parents who need to discuss these issues should approach their class teacher in the first instance or following this the Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher.

 Aims

-        To support and promote children’s learning.

-        To help the school find out what parents and carers think about important issues.

-        To involve parents and carers actively in school decisions.

-        To help contribute to plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children.

 Membership

The Parent Panel's membership is made up of parents and carers of children attending Brookdale Primary School. We aim to have one representatives for each class.

 Meetings

Parent Panel meetings are held every half term. The agenda is prepared in advance of the meeting and circulated by email. Minutes will be taken in the meeting and shared with members of the panel and also the wider community via the school website.
