The role of the Parent Council is to:-

  • 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 the Parent Forum

All parents and carers of children attending Bell’s Brae School are members of the Parent Forum.  The Parent Council was formed in accordance with the Constitution – reviewed 2019
