Contact Group Forum

Little Stoke Primary School Parent Contact Group




We have a thriving parent contact group comprising of a small group of enthusiastic and interested parents who meet termly to talk about a range of school issues. The parent contact group has real influence over school decisions and plays a valuable role in presenting the views of many of our parents.

Over the last two years, our parent contact group has been instrumental in changes such as those made to our reception area, signage around the school, displays and events which take place in school. They have driven the development of Facebook and Twitter as a source of information for parents and made a crucial contribution to important policies in school such as homework and uniform .

Our Parent Contact group meet termly to discuss school initiatives, policies and routines and continue to make a significant contribution to the development of these. We will be sharing more clearly how you can link up with members to share your views too. Our parent members are: Teresa Ladbrooke (Meredith Y6), Vicky Faramus (Charlie Y6), Mags Haggerty (Penelope Y3) Claire Sweeten (Louis Y5), Di Vowles (Ruby Y6) and Karen Pells (Martha Y2) Laura Bonarski (Stella-May Y6, Sean Y4 and Daisy Y2).

Over the last two years, the parent contact group has contributed to many key achievements in our school:
