The Oratory Primary School has an active and supportive Parents’ Association; parents and teachers work together for the good of the children in order to organise events throughout the year. All parents and staff members are welcome to be involved whenever they wish. The headteacher meets termly with the class representatives to hold a Parent Forum and liaises with the chair to finalise procedures for events. The Parent representatives cascade the information to other parents. The Parents’ Association organise regular coffee mornings and uniform sales, and are instrumental in the successful running of events such as the children’s Christmas lunch, First Communion Breakfast, and International Week.
We value open communication and consultation at Oratory Primary School and the school’s Parent Forum has been introduced in order to make it easier for parents to raise questions and make suggestions about the school. Our parent forum aims to represent the views of all parents and to be
a voice to inform our school of the needs of children and families. Each half term, the parent reps from each class meet with Mrs Griffiths to raise questions, suggestions and concerns. Mrs Griffiths may also consult parents on future plans for the school. The forum facilitates communication
between parents/carers and staff and governors, offer a parent’s perspective on current policy and practice and input into decision making and planning for future provision.
