Family Forums

At Little Hill we aim to involve parents as much as possible in the education of their children. Our Family Forums have been  very popular and they have allowed parents to have their say about the way the school supports children with a range of different needs.

"It is very beneficial to meet other parents with SEND children and listen to other's experiences."

"They are really helpful as you can talk openly about everything without the feeling of being judged."

Although the meetings are primarily aimed at parents of pupils with SEND, or additional needs, many interested parents and family members have also been involved and are of course equally welcome.

The meetings allow you to talk to other parents, staff and a range of different professionals. They enable you to find out information and share your views on how things are going. It has been great to have so many parents involved in shaping the school's SEND provision and already changes have been made to how we do things in response to your ideas.

Each forum has a particular area of focus, but there are always opportunities for parents to raise their own questions or discuss ideas in a supportive environment.
