What is the Downe Manor parents' forum?
It is a system for the headteacher/senior leadership team to consult with the parent body with issues relevant to the school. For example the parents' forum may gather feedback on improving:
• School systems and procedures
• Home School Agreements
What happens at a Downe Manor Forum Meeting?
Meetings are usually once per half term. Forum meetings usually take place on Fridays at 2:30pm (to finish in time for the end of the school day). The meeting is chaired by the head and minutes are taken. The agenda may include items identified by the school for discussion and items identified by parents for discussion.
Prior to the meeting, forum members would consult other parents on a particular issue and the feedback is shared at the meeting. The forum then collectively draws conclusions and recommends actions to the headteacher.
