The membership of the Parent Forum is made up of all parents who have a child at the school. The Parent Forum can decide to form a smaller body called the Parent Council. The Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent them.
Kilmarnock Academy Parent Council was formed in August 2007, replacing the existing School Board.
The role of the Parent Council involves:
•Consulting with parents and reporting to parents on matters of interest
•Encouraging the development of links between the school and parents
•Taking part in the selection of senior promoted staff to the school
•Discussing and approving the Head teacher’s plan for purchasing books and educational materials
•Setting dates for occasional holidays in consultation with interested parties
•Receiving reports from the Head teacher and education authority
•Receiving an annual budget for administration, training and other expenses
•Having power to raise funds and spending these for the benefit of the school after consulting the Head teacher
All parents of pupils attending Kilmarnock Academy are automatically members of the Parent Forum and may volunteer to join the Parent Council. If you wish to volunteer please contact the Head Teacher. We have a small but important parent council who work closely with the school in ensuring the parents’ voice is heard in taking forward improvements.
