About the Parent Council

By law schools have a duty to promote parents’ involvement in children’s education. Parents are encouraged to:

  • be involved with their child’s education and learning;
  • be welcomed as active participants in the life of the school; and
  • express their views on school education generally and work in partnership with their children’s schools.

 

Every parent who has a child at our school is a member of the Parent Forum. The parent council is a group of those parents chosen to represent the parent forum. As a member of the Parent Forum, each parent can expect to:

  • receive information about the school and its activities;
  • hear about what partnership with parents means in our school;
  • be invited to be involved in ways and times that suit you;
  • identify issues you want the parent council to work on with the school;
  • be asked your opinion by the parent council on issues relating to the school and the education it provides;
  • work in partnership with staff; and
  • enjoy taking part in the life of the school in whatever way you can.
