Parent Council

Our Parent Council was established in November 2016. Parents were invited to express an interest during the October Parent Teacher Consultation Evenings; six parents formally applied for the role and attended the three termly meetings last year.

 

The purpose of the Parent Council is to:

  • support the school in its work with pupils
  • represent the views and capture the voice of parents
  • promote and strengthen contact links between school, parents, pupils and the local community

 

Last academic year Parent Councillors:

  • helped to choose a new school meal provider alongside the School Council
  • made suggestions, shared thoughts and concerns and provided general feedback from parents
  • suggested fundraising ideas and how to utilise funds raised
  • reviewed the results of both the Parent Voice and Pupil Voice questionnaires
  • gave feedback on our new online Parent Teacher Consultation Evening online booking system.
  • reviewed the results of the whole school e-Safety survey.
  • worked with the School Council to find out about their role in school and what school is like for pupils.

 

Plans for 2017-18:

  • Recruit more members to the Parent Council via the questionnaire at Parent Teacher Consultation Evenings (16th/17th October)
  • Parent Councillors to help organise and support fund raising events including Hallowe'en and Valentine Discos, Mesty Craft Christmas Market, Raffles and the Summer Fayre
  • Hold at least termly meetings
  • Continue to build links with the community through Parent Councillors
  • Formalise the Parent Council by writing a constitution.
