Parent Council

Parent Council 2

A Parent Council is the group of parents in school representing parent views. They work in partnership  with pupils, the head teacher and the local authority to achieve the best for their  school.

When your child starts school, you automatically become a member of the parent forum and you can stand for election to the Parent Council. At The Royal High Primary, all parents, as members of the forum, are welcome at all meetings, whether they are elected to the Parent Council or not. New faces are always welcome, and new ideas, skills, and offers of help even more so!

Big thank you to the following companies for their donated raffle prizes:

Upcoming Events

Parent Council meeting & AGM is on Tuesday 12th June at 7pm in the staff room/dining hall depending on numbers attending.

Summer Fair will be on Friday 15th June from 12:30 till 2:30pm in the grounds of the school. All welcome.

View the Parent Council Facebook Page – this is a public page where you can find out information about events and developments at the school.

Join the Parent Council Facebook Closed Group – this is a closed group for members to share photos and news about the pupils, staff and PC achievements.

The Role of The Parent Council

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.

For example, The RHPS After-school Club works with Parent Council to report back to all the parents in the school (Parent Forum).
At Royal High Primary, most parents on the Council, and who attend meetings, simply want to help the school and improve things in any way they can for their children.

How can I get involved?

Every year, the parent forum elects a Parent Council, at an AGM which is announced in the school newsletter. After this meeting, which any parent/carer can attend, there are several meetings a year, usually on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm in the school. New blood, fresh faces and ideas are always very welcome. If attending meetings is difficult, you can become involved by helping at events; man a stall, send in home baking, help publicise events, there is no shortage of tasks! Lots of parents also bring their children to events to help too, and pupils seem to enjoy the responsibility and getting to see behind the scenes!
