What do Parent Councils do?
The role of the Parent Council is to:
- support the school in its work with pupils
- represent the views of all parents
- encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community
- report back to all the parents in the school (called the Parent Forum)
- play a role in the appointment of headteachers and depute headteachers
- support the school and pupils during school inspections.
In Ideas for Parent Councils, you can get ideas on the type of activities that Parent Councils are getting involved in. Further information on the role of Parent Councils can be found in the guidance on the Parental Involvement Act.
The chair of the School Parent Council is Martin Sisley. Martin.Sisley@tarves.org.uk
