Parent Council

We recognise that the greatest factor influencing the success of a child in school is the parents. To help us ensure that we continue to develop effective systems which allow us to seek and listen to the views of parents across the school and involve parents in decision making processes, we have established a Parent Council to represent the views of the parent body.

The Parent Council is a group of parent volunteers, who aim to represent your views and opinions as a parent of the school.

The Aims of the Parent Council:

  • Represent the view of all parents
  • Report back to parents on matters discussed
  • Support the school in its work with pupils and on matters of school improvement
  • To give parents a voice and increase their active involvement in decision making
  • To develop a partnership to support and promote pupil learning

The Parent Council has:

  • An advisory role – advising the Headteacher on matters of importance to the parent body.
  • A consultative role – a system for consulting parents on matters of school improvement and change.

The year group representatives work collectively as a group, taking the comments and ideas from parents and carers to meetings each half term with the Headteacher. Any action following each meeting will be decided upon by the school’s senior leaders based on a thorough exploration of the issues raised.
