The main role of the Parent Council is to represent the views of all parents and encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community. Other activities may include supporting the school in its work with pupils, playing a role in the appointment of senior staff and fundraising for school projects. National guidelines on how Parent Councils operate can be found on the Scottish Government website
The Annual General Meeting of the Papdale Parent Council is held in Term 1 each school year with all parents (the Parent Forum) invited to attend. At that meeting the Parent Forum will elect parents to serve as outlined in the Papdale Parent Council Constitution.
Parent Council Meetings are held each term to discuss any relevant issues raised by parents. Members of the Parent Form are welcome to attend these meetings and minutes from the meetings are posted on the school website.
Parent Council often arranges fundraising events to support the schools through providing additional resources to enhance the learning experience of the children. Click here for more details
