Parent Partnership

What is The Parent Partnership?

At Mead Primary School, our children are at the centre of everything we do. We value the support and input of our families hugely and place great importance on the collaborative effort between school and home in ensuring our children achieve the best they can.

The Parent Partnership meetings are a valuable way for the school to share information about the way we operate and how we help our children learn and develop. It is also a platform for parents to share ideas and views that may help the school continue to develop and improve.

Terms of Reference


∙ to work together to improve the education and opportunities provided for our children 

∙ to share information, knowledge and skills 

∙ to meet in a mutually supportive environment 

∙ to further improve communications between parent/carers and staff/governors 


The Parent Partnership Forum does not have any statutory responsibilities, duties or powers in the school.


Only parents/carers of children currently at Mead Primary School can be members. All parents/carers are eligible for membership. We also extend the opportunity for members of the Govening Body to attend.


Parent Partnership meetings will be informal and held each term. Please email if you have any ideas or suggestions that you would like included within a future meeting. All requests will be considered although we cannot guarantee every request will be used.

These will be published on the Parent Partnership page of the website.
