The Parent Council‘s role is to help the school to operate as a successful school and to represent parents and carers, the Parent Council facilitates communication between parents/carers, the school and pupils.
We meet regularly throughout the school year and have a planned programme of meetings, details of which can be found on the school website. We have also published information on the website of our structure, members and values.
All our meetings are open to any parents and carers to attend and are held in the school at 6:45pm on the published dates. If you want to get in touch with the Parent Council please contact the school office and they will pass the information along. If you are interested in joining the Parent Council please get in touch with our Chairperson – Shona Ulrichsen – via the school office.

Please note: concerns about individual pupils cannot be raised by the Parent Council and we urge you to always approach the school first with concerns about a particular child.
