WHAT IS A PARENT COUNCIL?
A Parent Council is a body of parents, representing parents, run by parents with the support of the school.
To develop a partnership between the school and parents/carers in order to support and promote the pupils’ learning and bring about change.
WHY HAVE A PARENT COUNCIL?
The most important factors in improving schools are good teaching and strong leadership. The biggest factor influencing the success of a child is the parents.
Involving parents in schools brings these two forces together and improves behaviour, results and the school.
Setting up a Parent Council will require a real commitment from the school and from some parents. It will take time for the Parent Council to become part of the life of the school.
