Parent Council

Parent Council

 

As a community focused school it is important that parental views are carefully considered. As a result the Parent Council was established in November 2013.

 

Aims and objectives of our  Parent Council:
 

  • To work in partnership with the School creating a welcoming environment that is inclusive for all its community
  • To promote partnership between the School, its pupils and all its families
  • To develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils, including providing or assisting in the provision of facilities to enhance education at the School
  • To identify and represent the views of parents on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils

The membership of the Parent Council shall be made up of parent members from the Parent Forum and co-opted members. Any parent of a child at the school may volunteer to be a member of the Parent Council. The headteacher of the school, whilst not a member of the Parent Council, has a right and a duty to attend or be represented at Parent Council meetings.

The Parent Council meet every half term at our school.  If  you have any ideas that the parent council can present at the next meeting we would appreciate your feedback. You can contact any member of the parent council, face to face, via email, or by leaving a written note at the school office for the attention of the Parent Council. 

Minutes of Meetings

Copies of the minutes of all Parent Council meetings will be available to all parents of children at school. Copies will also be available for teachers at the School. Copies will be also available on the school website and from the School office.

Over the past few years the Parent Council has been a major strength in school development. Mrs Cook is looking forward to continuing to build the strong links between school and home with the overarching mission of improving outcomes for all learners at our school. 

Code of Conduct

We expect parents, carers and visitors to:

  • Respect the caring ethos and values of our school
  • Understand that both teachers and parents need to work together for the benefit of their children.
  • Demonstrate that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and therefore set a good example in their own speech and behaviour.
  • Approach the school to help resolve any issues of concern.
  • Avoid using staff as threats to admonish children’s behaviour.

If a Parent Council member acts in a way that is considered by other members to undermine the objectives of the Parent Council, their membership of the Parent Council shall be terminated if the majority of parent members agree. Termination of membership will be confirmed in writing to the member.
