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 four 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 curriculum, communication, website and homework. In addition, we would like parents to help to promote the school by publicising and helping out at school events such as Open Evenings, Consultation Evenings and School Productions etc. 

The Parents’ Forum is chaired by Mrs Carolyn Forsyth (Deputy Headteacher) and would normally meet 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​​​​​​ by emailing In the first instance.

We Said - Mr Perry (Assistant Headteacher – Safeguarding and Attendance) explained how the app works and took queries from parents. The invite to all parents / carers has been sent to all contacts to invite them to join.

We Asked You - What adaptations should we make to the school’s uniform to support families and make it as affordable as possible.

Additional Questions Raised - How will parents get sufficient information from school about the progress of pupils in Year 10 when the consultation evening is so late in the year?
