Parent Council

​The Parent Council is a group of parents/carers selected by members of the parent forum (the collective name for every parent/carer) to represent their views.

Parent Councils have an important role to play in ensuring that children’s education is enriched by parents’ valuable life experience, individual personal skills and unique knowledge of their own child.
