Parental Engagement

 At Hordle CE Primary School we value the contribution our parents make to the school and the education of our learners and we understand that the support of parents is invaluable. 

The objectives of Parental Engagement are:

  • to support the educational development and welfare of all pupils
  • to support the continuous development of the school
  • to provide a channel for communication between school and parents and parents and school
  • to be informed of and consider items raised by school pupil groups
  • to seek to utilise the wide range of professional expertise of parents
  • to share good practice from a range of institutions
  • to consider and recommend future innovations
  • to liaise with PATCH where appropriate

Parent Forum

Our Parent Forum is an opportunity to express your views/make suggestions for our Senior Leadership Team on any matters relating to school. This could include (but is not limited to) curriculum, school activities, uniform, trips and school events.

Please can we ask that questions posed for discussion at the Parent Form are broad in nature and not specifically related to your child. . These questions are best answered by your child's class teacher who will be happy to discuss them at a mutually convenient time. Please email them directly in the first instance.
