Parent Voice


It is important all stakeholders have a representative voice in our school.

We have several levels of ‘Student Voice’, where our young people have the opportunity to share their views and ideas to help shape the future of Collierley Primary School.

Our Parent Forum is a similar group comprising of parents who meet on a half termly basis to share views and contribute ideas as to how we can make the education experience better for our students. Although we set an agenda and record minutes the group is a more informal approach than the Local Governing Body.

Working together with the parents’ forum we produced this useful booklet for families.

  • I believe that the teachers and Head Teacher genuinely care about each pupil as an individual. They are always welcoming, friendly and go above and beyond as compared to other schools. They make their learning fun and engaging and the level of care which they show towards each child is amazing. The forest school and green space available is a brilliant asset. They involve the school within the wider community activities and vice versa: which I think is important as it creates an important sense of belonging and community spirit. I genuinely couldn’t recommend this school enough. I haven't heard or seen of a case of bullying either within any of the years either xxx or xxx has attended, which I think speaks volumes towards the attitudes of both the staff and pupils.

  • Excellent staff and individual support
