Parent Council

Parent Councils came into force on 1st August 2007.

The composition of the Parent Council, as determined by the Parent Forum, is a minimum of 4 parent members and a maximum of 12. The Head teacher is the professional advisor to the Parent Council.

The Parent Council’s rights and duties include:

supporting the work of the school;
representing the views of parents;
consulting with parents and reporting back to the Parent Forum on matters of interest;
promoting contact between the school, parents, pupils, providers of nursery education and the wider community;
fundraising;
taking part in the selection of senior promoted staff;
receiving reports from the head teacher and education authority; and
receiving an annual budget for administration, training and other expenses
improving home school partnership and facilitating parental involvement

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.
