The Parental Involvement Act changed the arrangements for parental representation in schools. As of August 2007, Parent Councils will be the representative body for parents. The Parent Council has taken over the roles of the former School Board and P.T.A. including fundraising as well as a number of activities for both parents and pupils throughout the session. The role of the Parent Council is:
- support the school in its work with pupils .
- represent the views of all parents .
- encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community .
- report back to all parents in the school
Our Parent Council also includes a church representative. Meetings are held in school on the first Thursday of the month at 6.30pm.

Support for Parents and Carers
Watch out for new pages on Parentzone that will be helpful for parents and carers with children sitting exams in the coming weeks. This will include information about the new qualifications and a guide to preparing your child for exams, which has useful links to sample exam papers and revision aids. We will also be tweeting and providing regular updates throughout the exam period. You may have noticed a new series of materials to support numeracy at home has recently been added to Parentzone. These new materials provide ideas for building numeracy into everyday activities, applicable to Curriculum for Excellence early level through to fourth level. The materials consist of illustrations which can be downloaded from the website and handed out to parents and carers. We are also planning other changes to Parentzone in the coming months. Find out more in our news item.
