A warm welcome to the web page of Forfar Academy Parent Council. Forfar Academy Parent Council was established on 24 October 2007 and replaced the existing School Board. It comprises of parents who are interested in their children’s education and meets up to 6 times a year.
Our meetings are open and anyone who has a child at school is able and most welcome to attend. We are always looking for more ideas and involvement from parents. You can just turn up on the night or alternatively tell us which topics you would like us to investigate or discuss.
We look forward to sharing with you what is happening within the Parent Council – we speak on behalf of you the parents, be sure to make your feelings known on your child’s education – we are your voice!
Angus Council has established a Parent Council blog on Glow to strengthen communication between the Education Department and Parent Councils, as well as between Parent Councils. It can be accessed here.
Our Aims are:
~ to work in partnership with the school and Education Authority staff to create a welcoming school which is inclusive for all parents;
~ to promote partnership between the school, its staff, its pupils and all its parents;
~ to develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils in order to help them achieve their fullest potential;
~ to identify and represent the views of parents;
~ to promote links between the school and its wider community;
~ to report after each Parent Council meeting on its activities to the Parent Forum;
~ to engage in fundraising activities to support the school.
