Parent View gives you the chance to tell OFSTED what you think about your child’s school. Parent View asks for your opinion on aspects of your child’s school, from quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. They use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. A screencast demonstrating how to register and complete a survey on Parent View is available on the How to use Parent View page.
By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school. Or, if you want to, view the results for any school in England.

Parent Voice-Parent Forum
What is the Parent Forum?
The Parent Forum is a partnership between parents and the school. It is a valuable way to share ideas,views, and concerns, and make suggestions for improvement.
The aims of the Parent Forum will be to:
· work together to improve the education provided for our children
· share information, knowledge and skills
· meet in a mutually supportive environment
· further improve communications between families and staff/governors
The parent forum does not have any statutory responsibilities, duties or powers in the school.
Who can be part of the parent forum?
Any parent/carer of children currently at The Howard Primary School is welcome to join any parent forum meeting. The forum will be chaired by Miss Mills. At times other members of the school community will also attend the meetings depending on the agenda items and what the school feels they would like to share with the parents, such as new initiatives.
Why should I be part of the parent forum?
It gives you, the parent, an opportunity to get together on a regular basis with other parents to have your say on what the school is doing well, and suggest ideas of how things could be improved.
How often will the Parent Forum meet?
Every term for about an hour, on a Friday at 3 pm.
What will be discussed at the meetings?
Anything related to improving the school and further developing the partnership between the school and parents. The meetings will be informal and are an opportunity for an open discussion. Minutes of the meetings will be taken and these will be accessible on Class Dojo.
It is not the forum to discuss concerns or complaints involving individual children, families or members of staff. Remember we have an 'open-door policy' for individual needs, questions or problems.
How can I raise an issue?
If you are unable to attend send a What's App to the Class Representative and they will bring it up at the meeting
