Guidance for Form Parent Representatives

The role of the form parent representative is to provide the vital link in communication between the school, the FOSHA Committee and the parents in each year group; and to support the form teachers and FOSHA as needed throughout the year. The role can be done by one parent or shared amongst two.

Life at the school can get quite hectic and the amount of information we receive can be overwhelming. Therefore most Form Parent Representatives circulate a weekly email to the parents in their respective year group which highlights the coming week’s activities (the school does display this information each week on the relevant notice boards as well) along with any associated information or reminders that will be useful. Receiving a personal weekly email has proved extremely helpful to many, but this is totally up to the Form Parent Representatives to decide how they want to do this. 

The Form Parent Representatives also provide crucial support to new parents joining their year group by explaining the various activities that take place throughout the year. This would include the arrangements for the Friday Café, the second hand school uniform shop, mufti days and annual events for the children. Basically, anything that an existing parent takes for granted and a new parent may need help with.

Form Parent Representatives also tend to organise year group coffee mornings (in or out of school) and an end of term year group night out, to give both new and existing parents the opportunity to meet and catch up with each other.
