A Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents at a school on a voluntary basis.
All parents/carers in a school are automatically members of the Parent Forum of that school.
The purpose of a Parent Council is to:
- support the school in its work with parents
- represent the views of all parents
- encourage links between school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community
The Parent Council was established as a result of The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006.
Parent Council members work in partnership with school staff to promote contact between the school, parents and carers, pupils and the wider community. Parent Council members support the school in its work with pupils, contribute to school improvement and report to the Parent Forum.
The office bearers for 2017/2018 are:-
Chair: Lauren Smith
Vice Chair: Sarra Lavery
Secretary: Petrhona MacLeod
Treasurer: Catrina Curran
