Parent Council aims to:
  • Improve and enrich the education of all children.
  • Support parents to get involved in their children’s learning at home, in the community and at school.
  • Represent the views of all parents on school matters.
  • Encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community.
What is discussed at Parent Council meetings?
Prior to the meeting the Chair of the Parent Council will ask the parent representatives for items for the agenda. These might be topics such as communication between the home and school, school uniform, parking near the school, the school’s anti-bullying policy, etc.
Who can be members?
Any family members of children who attend Carleton Park Primary School can stand to be elected as a Parent Council representative. In addition, the Parent Council can decide to co-opt other members from teachers and the community who will have knowledge and skills to help them.
How long does a Parent Council run?
A Parent Council runs for an entire school year before a new council is elected. Parents can stand for re-election if they wish.
