Parent council

 

We have an active Parent Council who meet at least once a term.  Parents/Carers are encouraged to volunteer or put themselves forward to be chosen as representatives of the Parent Council. All meetings are open and parents are welcome to attend.

We believe that parental support and partnership is an important factor towards a pupil’s success at school.

 

Parent Councils:

  • Work in partnership with the school to decide on the key priorities to take forward;
  • Provide a voice for parents in schools and in their local authority on issues that are important to them;
  • Improve the school’s understanding of how to engage parents in their children’s learning and in the life of the school;
  • Support the school to develop strong home/school partnerships;
  • Communicate regularly with the Parent Forum to both hear their views and keep them informed;
  • Support improvement by discussing the school’s strengths and areas for development from a parental perspective;
  • Help make links with the wider community;
  • Capture the unique and varied skills, interests, knowledge and experience that parents can offer.
