Parent Council

The Parent Council contains a small number of parent representatives across EYFS, Key Stages 1 and 2; meetings are held half termly. It provides an effective forum in which members of the Senior Management Team and Mrs Webb our LPPA Lead, can consult with representatives of the Parental body. It provides the opportunity for Parents to raise any concerns that they may have.


Our aim is to meet, share ideas and feedback to the school; give parents a voice and enable them to contribute to school decision-making and help develop a partnership between parents and school.

How to get in touch

You can contact one of the parent representatives listed below who will raise your questions at the next Parent Council meeting.

Benefits for parents

Benefits for the school

  • Parents are able to express their views and know that they can make a difference;
  • They develop a sense of ownership;
  • They receive advice about how to support their children’s learning;
  • They learn more about how the school operates.
  • A better understanding of parents’ views and experiences;
  • A way of drawing new and different parents into active involvement;
  • A way of demonstrating that the school is engaging with parents;
  • Improved pupil behaviour and results, as parents have the biggest influence on the success of their children;
  • A chance to work with parents to find solutions to difficulties.

What a Parent Council is…

… and what it is not!

  • a group for parents to work in partnership with the school;
  • a group that is clear about its purpose and decides its own agenda;
  • a group that can advise the school on parental views;
  • a forum through which school can consult parents.
  • a body that makes decisions for the school;
  • a replacement for the governing body;
  • a replacement for other groups such as the Parent Teacher Association;
  • a forum for complaints about individual teachers, pupils or parents.
