Parent/Carer Forum Introduction

Parent/Carer Forum Introduction

The Parent/Carer Forum was formed by a handful of parents & carers in January 2014.  The forum is run by parents/carers with the support of the academy who meet once a term to discuss academy related issues.

Meetings are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion.  All parents/carers are always most welcome at the meetings so please do come along.

The two main purposes of the Parent/Carer Forum are:

– Give the parents/carers a voice and increase their active involvement in decision-making, fostering a culture of ownership and participation.

– Develop a partnership between the academy and the parents/carers in order to support & promote the pupils academic and social learning and bring about appropriate positive change.

FUNdraising jointly with academy staff for the good and benefit of the students of Springfields Academy!

Please remember you are not alone as we all share a common & special bond with our respective children. We are all great Parents/Carers alike no matter our challenges in life!

If you have an academy related issue or simply wish to make a suggestion, then please contact us on the following email
