Parent Council Meeting

Dear Parent / Carer

All parents and carers are invited to come to the next meeting of the Parent Council this Thursday, 14th November at 7pm at school.  We would be delighted to see new faces! 😊

The Parent Council supports an environment where all parents & carers know that their views matter, where they feel confident and comfortable in putting them forward.  It also:

  • provides a voice for parents/ carers on issues that are important to them and their children
  • supports the school in developing strong home/school partnerships
  • helps the school:
  • effectively involve parents/carers in their children’s learning and the life of the school
  • understands the unique and varied skills, abilities, interests, knowledge and expertise that parents/ carers can offer.

All meetings are open to all parents/ carers and there is no obligation to come to every meeting, just when you can or there is something on the agenda that you want to hear more about or want to contribute or ask a question. The school is more successful when we all work together!
