Understanding what goes on in school and having a say in what happens there is important to all of us. The purpose of the Parent Council is to provide a voice for all our parents and carers, working with the school and the local authority on issues that are important to us and our children. As parents and carers we have a lot to offer the school in terms of interests, skills, and experience and it is this partnership that helps to support the education and welfare of our children.
Being involved in the Parent Council can involve as much or as little time as you like. In terms of time we meet every 2 months for approximately 2 hours where we discuss any current issues and often arrange for people to come and talk to us about services associated with the school.
For 2021-22 the Chair of the Parent Council is Mr Colin Esslemont and the Vice-Chair is Mr Richard Sharp.
