Next Meeting: Wednesday 1st November 2017 at 2pm
Welcome to the Barmulloch Primary School Parent Council Website. You can keep upto date with ongoing discussions with parents, carers and the school. Your welcome to come along and join us at our next Parent Teacher Meeting held within Barmulloch Primary School throughout the school year.
The Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents of children at the school. Parent Councils are very flexible groups and the Parent Forum can decide on the type of group it wants to represent their views.
The type of things a Parent Council could get involved in include:
Supporting the work of the school,
Gathering and representing parents' views to the -Head Teacher, education authority and HMIE,
Promoting contact between the school, parents,
pupils and the local community,
Involvement in the appointment of senior school staff,
Parent Councils are recognised in law from August 2007. As a statutory body, the Parent Council has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children's education. So, the school and the local authority must listen to what the Parent Council says and give it a proper response. Every school's Parent Council will be different because it will be parents in each school who make the key decisions.
