Pencaitland Primary School Parent Council & Forum
We are all a part of the parent forum if we have a child in Pencaitland Primary and/or Nursery. The collective voice of the Parent Forum, is represented by the Parent Council – currently composed of 9 parents, teacher rep and community rep (who is also a parent rep currently). Head teacher Nicola Wilson also attends each meeting as an advisor and to ensure the Parent Council has relevant information regarding PPS. The meetings are open to all the wider parent forum. To express interest or intent to attend a meeting, please contact Clerk through PC email, noted below.
**”Parent” is used to describe both parents and carers including guardians.** Together we work with the school staff, to help support our children, improve outcomes and be the best advocates we can for the children collectively.
The Parent Council is the group of parents/carers who endeavour to communicate between the wider parent forum and the school staff, support fellow parents / carers, the children in general and the staff to deliver the best school days and learning environment possible. We work closely with the PTA in this regard too.
To find out more about the current parent council, you can find information and minutes from meetings, dates of meetings and who’s who by looking through the Parent Council tab.
If you would like to bring up any issues to the parent council, we are all happy to hear ideas / suggestions / concerns either via your class rep, chair or by emailing your concern to parent council and asking for the matter to be raised at the next meeting if possible.
[We cannot discuss individual children or individual staff members, so your class rep will advise if the matter you wish to discuss is outwith our remit and something for your class teacher or head teacher to deal with in the first instance].
Next Meeting: 30th April 2018. 7pm PPS.
