Parent Voice is a group of parents/carers with children at Dunalley whose
principal aim is a very simple one: to discuss given general topics about the
school with subsequent feedback to staff for their consideration in the hope
that suggestions and ideas might be taken forward to further enhance the
children’s time at Dunalley.
Parent Voice is a “two way” forum. It is not only able to discuss
specific school topics and questions that parents/carers as a whole may want to
be evaluated but can also consider topics that staff may want Parent Voice to
Solely for practical reasons, the core of Parent Voice is made up of a small number of parents who have children across all year groups. Ideally
Parent Voice would have 3 or 4 parent “reps” from each year group, as this
will ensure that if one parent from a given year group is unable to attend a
meeting, someone else from the same year group should be able to. This
structure gives a voice to all year groups and allows a diversity of opinions
that are representative of all year groups to be made.
Key to the eventual success of Parent Voice is offering the
opportunity to all parents/carers with children at Dunalley to participate in
these discussions. To do so, forms will be made available to all parents/carers
to complete prior to any Parent Voice meeting so that this feedback can be
evaluated and discussed at the meeting. Comments can also be submitted prior
to any meeting via the dedicated Parent Voice email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates and times of Parent Voice meetings will be included in the weekly
school newsletter when appropriate. The aim is for Parent Voice to meet at
least once a term. Key points from all Parent Voice meetings and the school’s
responses will be posted on this page for future reference.
Please do contribute to Parent Voice. We hope to hear from as many of you
as possible as we discuss the topics raised. Together let’s try and make our
children’s days at Dunalley as enjoyable as possible.
