Parent Link (formerly Parent Council)

What is the Parent Link?

It’s a forum of parents joined by a co-opted teacher member and the head teacher. East Lothian Councillors can also attend.

What is the role of the Parent Link?

The main duties of the parent Link are to—

  • support the school in its work
  • consult with and represent the views of parents and carers
  • encourage links between the school and its pupils and parents/carers
  • report back to all the parents in the school (called the Parent Forum)
  • play a role in the appointment of headteachers and depute headteachers

The Chair of the Parent Link and other members also have the opportunity to represent the school on the Preston Seton Gosford area partnership and the East Lothian Association of Parent Council Members.

All meetings of the Parent Link are held in public and parents and carers are welcome to come along to any meeting of the Council to feed in views and find out more.

  • Co – Chairs:      Louise Clarke, Claire Jamieson and Marie McMath
