Parent Forum


In St Mungo's Academy we work closely with our parents/carers to support the attainment and wider achievement of all our children and young people. Our school's parent forum automatically includes every parent/carer with a child enrolled at our school. Parent forums are a way for schools to encourage more parents to get involved in school life. They are informal groups where parents can raise issues, be consulted on school policy and give their views. As a member, you have:

  • a right to advice and information about your child's education at the school
  • the opportunity to be more involved with what the school is doing
  • the opportunity, along with all the other parents, to have your views represented through a Parent Council at your school.

A Parent Council is a group of parents selected by all parents in the school to represent their views. Parent Councils have an important role to play in our school improvement by ensuring that the parental perspective is represented and taken into account. The Parent Council works closely with the management team to support the improvement of the school. As a member of the parent forum, you have an important role in working closely with the Parent Council by:

  • participating in deciding how the parent representative body, the Parent Council, is organised and how it operates
  • identifying issues you want the Parent Council to work on with the school
  • being asked your opinion by the Parent Council on issues relating to the school and the education it provides.

While we regularly consult with our Parent Forum on individual cases and through consultation surveys, we would like to engage further with you as a group.  Parents and carers are essential to the success of St Mungo's and we have a long and proud history of community involvement, and working with parents/carers to support our young people.  

If you are interested in supporting the work of the school further in this area and would like to discuss this with the Head Teacher please email on the following address:
