Parent Forum and ParentMeet

Parent Forum and ParentMeet Overview 2022-2023

Working in partnership we like to create and support opportunities to involve parents, carers and students in building a stronger College community. Through our Parent Forum and ParentMeet evenings, we welcome parents and carers to support and learn more about their child’s education whilst at Ivybridge Community College.

 

Parent Forum

Parent Forum is a focus group of parents and carers who come together to support the College Leadership Team with Whole College Improvements by providing a solution focussed approach to current developments.

The Forum will provide useful feedback on a range of topics and whilst the dates below are advertised, Forum members may be called upon to support the College at other times when required during the Academic year.  If you are interested in joining the Forum you just need to sign up to the evening you would like to support on the College Website.

 

 

ParentMeet

The ParentMeet is an opportunity to hear from a range of staff in the College.  The ParentMeet is a purely information sharing evening and usually has an overarching theme such as ‘Safeguarding’, which will be advertised to all parents and carers via email, as well as the broad title below.

All attendees to ParentMeet and Parent Forums are kindly requested to register prior to the events on our website or via the links sent by email.

 

We do welcome feedback and invite parents to contact us with any feedback or views you wish to share on the form below, or by emailing us at - parentforum@ivybridge.devon.sch.uk

We additionally send out questionnaires from time to time via email. These questionnaires enable us to review elements of College life and parent/carer views are highly valued.
