Parent Council

Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006
School Boards were replaced in August 2007 by a new system of Parent Councils.  The 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 legislation supports parental involvement in a much wider sense than before.  It aims to help all parents to be:

  • involved with their child’s education and learning
  • welcomed as active participants in the life of the school
  • encouraged to express their views on school education generally and work in partnership with the school

The Parent Council consists of seven parent members,  two co-opted members and two members of the teaching staff.  The Head Teacher and Local Councillors may attend meetings as advisors to the Parent Council and have a right to speak, although, not being members of the Parent Council, no right to vote.

There are four meetings held throughout the session, in addition to the AGM in May.  As members of the Parent Forum, parents are welcome to attend meetings as observers.  Your Parent Council Representatives are as follows:
