Moray Parents have a Voice
WHAT IS A PARENT COUNCIL? - A parent council is an elected body of parents, teachers and local community members who are interested in the well being of their local school.
WHAT DOES IT DO? - The principal aim of a parent council is to promote the involvement of parents and local communities in the provision of school education.
Along with head teachers and local authorities, Parent Councils share in the running of their school.
DOES THE PARENT COUNCIL HAVE RESPONSIBILITIES? - Parent Councils have a number of responsibilities:
- To promote contact between school, parents and community.
- To find out parents views
- To report to parents.
- To participate in the selection of senior staff.
- To support the school in its work with pupils via consultation of new school policies/curriculum resources and reporting views to the head teacher.
- To have an active role in how resources are spent within the school.
WHO CAN GET INVOLVED? - All parents are member of the wider Parent Forum and as such are entitled to come along to any meeting.
Therefore come along and have a say in what goes on in OUR school for OUR children!
