Parent Council

Parent Council

The school and the local authority work in partnership with the Parent Council, listening to their views and responding to issues raised. Parent Councils make decisions about items such as:

  • how their Parent Council will be set up and the constitution
  • what it should be called (Parent Council or other name)
  • what size it should be, e.g. in a very small primary school, all parents could be involved (no limit on size)
  • who should be a member of the Parent Council (majority must be parents)
  • how parents can join and support the school
  • how they can work together with the school and pupils to support children’s learning
  • when the most convenient time is to hold meetings
  • what will be discussed at meetings – these might be topics such as Curriculum for Learning – how parents can play an active part in helping the school to take forward Curriculum for Excellence; school uniform, fund-raising; how parents can support children’s learning, helping the school develop guidelines such as anti-bullying, health and wellbeing etc.

However, it should be noted that a Parent Council cannot discuss issues attributed to individual pupils or other parents.
