  2. representing the views of parents;
  3. consulting with parents and reporting back to the Parent Forum on matters of interest;
  4. promoting contact between the school, parents, pupils, providers of nursery education and the wider community;

  6. taking part in the selection of senior promoted staff;
  7. receiving reports from the head teacher and education authority; and

Members of Parent Councils, on a voluntary basis, may also have an advisory role in decisions on placing requests by parents in respect of those situations where the number of placing requests for a particular school or for a particular stage in a particular school exceeds the number of places available.

It should be noted that the Head Teacher has a right and duty to attend all meetings of the Parent Council. Meetings of the Parent Council are open to members of the public.
