About the Parent Council
Schools are most effective when they develop positive relationships with parents and the community they serve. The Parent Council supports these relationships and works with the school to achieve its objectives helping it make improvements where needed.
The main functions of the Parent Council are to:
- Support the school in its work with pupils and parents
- Represent the views of parents
- Promote contact and communication between the school, parents, pupils, the community and other providers
- Report to the Parent Forum.
Why are we here?
Because parents are important and make a real difference to children’s learning – when parents are involved children and young people do better and achieve more:
- To work together with everyone involved in school life – parents, learners, teachers, school staff and the wider community – to support the school
- To make sure that all parents have a say in their children’s education – and are able to express their views and wishes
- To build links and involve parents with the wider learning community.
