Parent Council

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 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

The Parent Council, as a statutory body, has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children’s education. Parents who are involved on a regular basis in schools should undertake an enhanced disclosure through Disclosure Scotland.

St Stephen’s has established a Parent Council and the Parent Council meets termly and the dates are posted on X (formally Twitter).  Meetings are open to members of the board. Elections take place in line with agreed constitution. Parents are invited to AGM voting if needed.

The Parent Forum can access minutes of the meetings and the constitution by contacting the school office.

The parent council can be contacted by email:
