Parents Forum

                                                             Parents Forum

As soon as your child starts at Reddish Vale High School we welcome you to join our Parents’ Forum.  The Parents’ Forum has been established for two years and contributes regularly and positively to the development of school policy. 

The purpose of the Parents’ Forum is to work in partnership with Reddish Vale High School to comment on our items such as curriculum, communication, website and homework.  In addition we would like parents to help to promote the school by helping out at and publicising our events such as Open Evenings, Parents’ Evenings and School Productions etc.

The Parents’ Forum is chaired by Carolyn Forsyth (Deputy Headteacher) and meets five times per year and new members are very welcome.  Members of the forum are invited to request agenda items prior to each meeting and the school will schedule other discussion points for information and consultation.

 If you are interested in joining the Parents’ Forum please contact Lynn Moores​​​​​​ and we will get back to you to invite our to our next meeting.
