Our Parent Council has an important role to play in helping ensure parents’ unique knowledge of their own child, their valuable life experience and individual personal skills help enrich children’s education.

 

Why parents’ views matter


Encouraging and supporting parents to share their views and ideas, and ensuring they influence what happens at the school, benefits everyone involved.

 
Parents have a unique knowledge of their own child, valuable life experience and personal skills, as well as energy and creativity and a vested interest in making sure the school is working well. Helping parents to feed in their views and ideas on a variety of educational issues, so that they are involved in educational planning and decision-making, will enrich children’s educational experiences and help to ensure the school is responsive to its local community’s needs.

Class Representatives

Parent Council representatives are more likely to know and meet parents of children in the same class as their own child or living in the same area.  This exchange of information can provide important opportunities for feeding parents’ views in to the Parent Council.  Each Class has at least one parent representative sitting on the Parents' Council and each representative has set up a Facebook group to gather your views.

Parent Council meetings

Provide important opportunities for parents to discuss issues and put forward their views and ideas. Ensure all parents are invited and that they feel welcome to attend. If turn out is poor, try and reflect on why this may be.
