Parent School Partnership Constitution

At our Parent Council AGM on 15 September this year, a new proposed Constitution was approved by the members of the Parent Forum present at the meeting. The Parent Forum accepted a slight change in the wording of one point in the proposed Constitution (paragraph 18 change ‘Council’ to ‘Forum’) and agreed that the name of the Parent Council should be changed to the Parent School Partnership. To ratify these changes, the proposed Constitution must now go to all members of the Parent Forum. You can find the proposed Constitution here:

A change to the Constitution can be made at the AGM or at an extraordinary meeting. An extraordinary meeting will therefore be held immediately before the Parent School Partnership meeting on Tuesday 19 January 2016 at 7.00 pm in the school Library. If the proposed changes to the Constitution are approved at that meeting, the Parent Forum will be informed. If you wish to comment on the proposed Constitution, please email communications@northberwickhigh.elcschool.org.uk. Your email will be forwarded to the Chair of the Parent School Partnership.
