Parent Council

 

The Parent Council is a group of parents / carers selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents / carers of children at the school. Parent Councils are very flexible groups and the Parent Forum can decide on the type of group it wants to represent their views. A Parent Council could get involved in:
  • Supporting the work of the school;
  • Gathering and representing parents’ / carers’ views to the head teacher, education authority and HMIe;
  • Promoting the contact between the school, parents / carers, children and the local community;
  • Fundraising;
  • Involvement in the appointment of senior school staff.
Parent Councils are recognised in law from August 2007. As a statutory body, the Parent Council has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children’s education. So, the school and the local authority must listen to what the Parent Council says and give it a proper response. Every school’s Parent Council will be different because it will be parents / carers in each school who make the key decisions. The Parent Council is also entitled to support from the education authority in fulfilling its role.
Our Parent Council meets regularly to support the school’s aims. Please contact the head teacher if you would like to become involved.
