Parent Council

Mission Statement

  • To extend the partnership between our school, community and parents
  • To consult with parents through their involvement, listening to the 'parent voice'
  • To extend the relationship of trust and support that exists between home and school
  • To provide a means of guidance and practical information for all parents in line with the school ethos

 

Ground Rules

The Parent Council:

  • is an active and positive group
  • aims to expand the partnership between parents and school
  • will not discuss individual children, staff, parents or governors
  • will not deal with complaints but will point parents in the right direction
  • will maintain confidentiality where necessary
  • will elect a Chairperson and Vice-Chair annually
  • will seek to meet monthly during term time
  • will appoint a Secretary to keep minutes, which will be kept on the school website

 

The Head Teacher will attend each meeting and will support members with their Agenda items.
