Gourock Primary: Parents in Partnership (PiP)
Every parent or carer of a child in Gourock Primary is automatically a member of the Parent Forum. Gourock Primary ‘Parents in Partnership’ (PiP) group, formally known as the Parent Council, works closely with the school as representatives of the Parent Forum.
We meet regularly in the school on Monday evenings at 7pm, meetings are informal and usually last about an hour. Any parent or carer is welcome to attend. Dates of the meetings can be found below.
With a focus on supporting the teachers and management team, and as a voice for parents, we help shape the vision for the school.
Each meeting we will cover any general topics raised by parents, the Head Teachers’ report from Mrs Nicolson, and there is a big focus on organising fundraising events and deciding on where this money is best spent.
If there is anything you wish us to discuss then please contact PiP at the following email address.
Meeting dates for the coming terms are:
- Monday 9th March 7pm
- Monday 11th April 7pm
- Monday 8th June 7pm
N.B. If you have any specific concerns regarding the school or your child, these should be raised with the school directly.

- You said, We did…
- Upcoming dates
