Parent Council
The composition of the Parent Council will be determined by the Parent Forum.  The Headteacher will be the professional adviser to the Parent Council.

The Parent Councilís rights and duties include:
  • supporting the work of the school
  • representing the views of parents
  • consulting with parents and reporting back to the Parent Forum on matters of interest
  • promoting contact between the school, parents, pupils, providers of nursery education and the wider community
  • fund raising
  • taking part in the selection of senior promoted staff
  • receiving reports from the headteacher and education authority and
  • receiving an annual budget for administration, training and other expenses.
Members of Parent Councils, on a voluntary basis, may also have an advisory role in decisions on placing requests by parents in respect of those situations where the number of placing requests for a particular school or for a particular stage in a particular school exceeds the number of places available.
