Overview of the Parent/Carer Forum

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 three 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
