In Forehill, parents are viewed as valuable partners in their child’s learning.

As a school, we place a strong emphasis on partnership working, and are keen in Forehill to foster strong links with parents, and to work in partnership with all parents and members of the community to the benefit of all pupils.

Parents are encouraged to visit the school at any time to discuss their child’s progress. However, it would be helpful if an appointment is arranged in advance through the office, to ensure the appropriate member of staff is available.

Formal Parents’ afternoons / evenings are held twice throughout the year, where parents are given the opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss any areas of concern and to celebrate successes. In addition, we run a series of open afternoons, where parents are given the opportunity to visit their child’s class and work alongside them for a short while “Learning Together”.

Regular monthly newsletters are issued to all parents, keeping them fully informed about what is happening in the school.

Forehill Primary School has reviewed methods of communication between school and parents / guardians and will e-mail communications (if parent / guardian has an e-mail address). We also communicate by text and via our website.

In the past, parents have assisted the school in many ways – parent helpers, extra-curricular activities, etc. We are fortunate in Forehill to have a hard working Parent Council and fundraising group, who work closely with the Head Teacher to benefit the school and the wider community.

A number of parents regularly volunteer to assist on school trips and assist in a number of other ways within classes – art & craft, library, reading, gardening. The Head Teacher would love to hear from any parent willing to become involved in assisting.

Parents are regularly invited to be involved in decisions about school policy. The Head Teacher arranged regular parent drop-in sessions for parents, to chat informally and to discuss a range of issues about the school and the work we do.

Parents are valued partners in Forehill.
