What is the Parent Council?
All parents and carers of pupils enrolled in a school are, automatically, members of that school’s Parent Forum.
The Parent Forum has the authority to set up a Parent Council. We believe that a robust and thriving school needs to be supported and sometimes challenged by the pupils and parents; as users of its services. This function is offered by the Parent Council, who’s main functions of the parent council are to:
- Support the school in its work with pupils and parents
- Represent the view of parents
- Promote contact and communication between the school, nursery, parents and pupils as well as other support facilities.
- Report to the parent forum
In our experience open and transparent discussion provide us with the best opportunities to identify areas of concern and a good forum to suggest solutions. Our monthly Parent Council meetings are the main forum for all parents to listen and contribute to the latest agenda issues.
