Parent Forum

We are learning fun facts about Penguins! Today we investigated squid and fish which Penguins love to eat! We were very brave and enjoyed smelling and feeling it! We even shared our knowledge with other adults around school! #smellyfish😂

Inkersall is at the centre of a close-knit and supportive community which includes our parent and carer volunteers. A number of groups are in place to help parents and carers to make an active contribution to the school.

The purpose of the parent forum is to enhance communication between parents and carers and the school. Held termly, meetings of the forum are chaired by the Principal as part of a welcoming tea party format. Volunteers and governors may also present and are able to act as another point of contact with class teachers and the school.

The parent forum provides an opportunity for parents and carers to ask questions, be listened to and develop an active involvement and knowledge of the workings of the school. The forum also provides an opportunity for parents to be consulted and to give feedback on new initiatives, school strengths, and areas in which school practice could develop.

All parents and carers are automatically enrolled as a member of the forum, and are encouraged to suggest topics for discussion prior to the meetings.

If you would like to join the Parent Forum, have any questions regarding the work of the forum or would like to review recent meeting minutes, please contact the school office at
