Parent Forum and Parent Council
All parents of All Saints Primary are members of the Parent Forum.
We have an active Parent Council at All saints in line with a constitution. This Parent Council, as a statutory body, will be reflective of Parental and Staff opinion and has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children’s education. Our Parent Council meets regularly and minutes/dates of meetings are available from the school and on the school website.
Scottish Schools (parental Involvement) Act 2006 led to the establishment of Parent Councils in primary, secondary and special schools. The Act recognises the vital role that parents play in supporting their children’s learning. It places a duty on authorities to promote the involvement of parents in children’s education and the wider life of the school. It aims to help parents to be:-
- Involved with their child’s education and learning
- Welcomed as an active participant in the life of the school
- Encouraged to express their views on school education generally
Any parent wishing to stand for election to the Parent Council should contact Mrs Fisher, in the first instance.
N.B. DISCLOSURE: Any parents who are involved on a regular basis in schools should undertake a PVG check through Disclosure Scotland.
