We value open communication and consultation at Bousfield Primary School and the school’s Parent Forum has been introduced in order to make it easier for parents to raise questions and make suggestions about the school. Our parent forum aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. Every two months, the parent forum reps from each class meet with Mrs Griffiths to raise questions, suggestions and concerns. Mrs Griffiths may also consult this group on future plans for the school.
The forum facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors, offer a parent's perspective on current policy and practice and enables parental input into decision making and planning for future provision.
Each class has a parent representative. Being a class rep is an important and rewarding role. Class reps help build a sense of community among the class parents and they are a vital link between the class and the Friends of Bousfield (FoB). There can be more than one class rep per class so they can share out tasks.
Class reps also send reminders to parents, welcome new families, liaise with the classteacher and attend the Headteacher’s Parent Forum
Questionnaires and Surveys
The school regularly seeks feedback from parents in the form of surveys, questionnaires or consultations. These are usually in digital form, and can ask for general feedback or opinions about a particular issue, such as school clubs. Links to these surveys will be sent by email.
