Parents Portal

Welcome to the Parent Forum

The Parent Forum is a group of current parents who work with school leaders and other staff to develop partnerships with school share their views on areas of the school’s work and help to improve what we offer for children at Parrs Wood.

The Parent Forum meets each term and welcomes new members at any point. If you would like to come along to any meeting please email Eileen Garry, Head teacher’s PA

Notes from each meeting will be posted on this page and will include the date of the next meeting, which we agree upon when we meet.
