What is the Crookfur Primary School Parent Council (PC)?

A committee appointed to run matters on behalf of all parents/carers who have a child at the school – known as the Parent Forum. It is not run by the school or local authority, rather by the parents in the school.

Our updated Constitution (Sept 2020) can be found here.

A copy of our Parent Council accounts for 2020/21 can be found here  along with a summary of our activities, as presented at the AGM.

There are parent representatives for each year group. The representatives for 2021/22 are:

  • Family Centre – Catherine McLatchie
  • P1 – James Campbell, Jenni MacKinnon, Krys Kujawa
  • P2 – Maaham Ahmad, Sarah Penny, Amna Munir

  • P7 – Denny Henderson (Chair), Gillian Plews, Fraser Strachan

You can see what we all look like here. All members adhere to the Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy

What is the Aim of the PC?

  • Help the school to operate successfully and represent all parents/carers.
  • Improve links between all parents/carers and the school.
  • Ensure parents receive the information they need in an accessible way, and that school staff receives feedback on parents’ views.
  • Discuss issues of interest to parents, i.e. school policies.
  • Optimise parental involvement in their children’s learning.
  • Be involved in recruitment of new senior staff.
  • Social and fundraising activities (NB: at Crookfur this is undertaken by a sub-committee called the Fundraising & Social Committee)

What does the PC not do?

Pursue issues regarding individual pupils or parents. These should be discussed with the Class Teacher or Head Teacher as appropriate.

When are PC meetings?

Six or seven times per school year, approximately every six weeks. Dates can be found on the school calendar.

Who attends the meetings?

Members of the PC alongside the Head Teacher, Depute Head Teachers and Local Councillor. Pupils regularly attend the PC meeting to update members on initiatives within the school, accompanied by their Class Teacher.

How can I contact the Parent Council?

Parents/carers can contact their year group representative with any issues they would like to raise, or email the Chair at
