Birchfield's Parent Voice Group was established in the second half of the Spring Term 2023.
Regular, open communication and consultation is highly valued at Birchfield Primary School. The Parent Voice Group aims to represent the views of all parents and to be a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families.
It facilitates communication between parents/carers and staff and governors. The group works to provide feedback on provision, offer a parent's perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.
The role of the Parent voice is consultative and advisory: the Governing Body and Headteacher remains the decision maker of the school and provides strategic leadership.
- To support and promote children's learning at Birchfield.
- To help the school find out what parents and carers think about important issues.
- To involve parents and carers fully in the development of the school.
- To make plans that support the ways the school wants to develop and improve outcomes for our children.
Meetings will be held termly, although additional communications will be maintained through forms if and when required. All meeting dates will be communicated via the weekly newsletter and held in our 'After School Club' classroom.
It is import to discuss areas of strength as well as making suggestions for improvements as the school also needs to reflect on what is working well.
My son has been inspired by your Art Day this term.
My children are happy at Birchfield and have positive experiences. They love the projects and have even enjoyed dressing up for Viking Day this year.
The school is so friendly - all of my children have loved coming to school here.
I think that Birchfield is a warm and welcoming school that has always involved me in my child's learning, especially through themed days.
The Parent Voice membership is made up of parents and carers of children attending Birchfield Primary School. Members of the senior leadership team and a representative of the governing body also attend meetings.
