Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006
This act makes provision for all parents to be members of the Parent Forum at a school, and to have their views represented to the school, Education Authority and others, through a representative Parent Council for the school.
The Act aims to help all parents to
- Be involved with their child’s education and learning
- Be active participants in the life of the school
- Promote contact between school, parents/carers
- Be involved in the appointment of senior school staff
- Fundraise for the school
In this current session the following parents hold key posts:
Simon Cunningham Chair of Parent Council
Debbie Biddles Vice-Chair
Lesley Cook Secretary
Lisa Gold Treasurer
Ellie Murphy Webmaster
The Parent Council will share with parents, via email, the agenda for forthcoming meetings. In response, parents are invited to share their views with Parent Council members so that their views can inform any discussion.
