Parent Forum

Parents Forum

The Parent Forum is a team of committed parents and carers representing you to give you a voice for the matters that concern school governance.  Please see our Terms of Reference here.

Our primary intention is to influence decisions positively, that are in your child’s best interests. To achieve this, we encourage your views and endeavour to reflect them in the decision-making processes. Our aim is to facilitate effective links between parents and the school management whilst fostering a healthy partnership between these two key bodies.

The Parent Forum, amongst other things, is keen to play an active role in shaping the future of our school thereby ensuring its pupils achieve their optimal best in curricular and co-curricular activities and raise the school’s profile across the wider region.

As part of our ongoing effort to make continual improvements we welcome your feedback. Therefore please write to your year group representatives or meet one of us at the schoolgate or at a school event; we will be delighted to meet you and hear your views.

Another way for parents to communicate privately to each other is via Schoolgate which is a confidential platform. It’s not run by the School but by parents so if you wish to sign up to the CFS Schoolgate page on Facebook first you need a Facebook account. Then search CFS Schoolgate, ask to join (you can only join if you are a parent/carer of the school). Your request will go to one of the Administrators to verify and approve your request.
