The Burgh School Council

This new section is where you’ll be able to find out about what The Burgh Council is doing to represent all parents and carers.

 What is the Burgh School Council?

The Burgh Council is a group of parents, carers, school staff and co-opted members of the local community.  The council exists to support the school in its work with children.  We aim to promote and encourage greater involvement in our childrens education and learning.

To aid communication between school, parents/carers and the local community, each class -from Nursery through to Primary 7, including our Communication Provision Unit – has 2 class representatives.  The class reps are not a replacement for parents/carers speaking directly to Class Teachers or the Management Team. 

The Burgh School Council Aim:

  • To work in partnership with the school to create a welcoming environment which is inclusive for all parents and carers.
  • To promote partnership between the school, its pupils, parents, carers and the wider community.
  • To initiate, develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils.
  • To identify and represent the views of parents and carers on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.

How can you get involved?

Anyone can attend the Burgh Council meetings and participate in the activities we organise.  You will find dates for forthcoming meetings in the Events Calendar or speak to your Class Rep.  You could volunteer to help in many different ways:

    • Fundraising events – planning, organising, helping on the day
    • Come along and share your views at our next meeting
    • Active Schools – give some of your time to assist with after school sports
    • Playground Improvements – suggest new ways to generate funding
    • Comment on the content of this website
