What is the Parent Council?
The Parent Council is the representative body for all parents of pupils at Hatton (Cruden) Primary School. It is designed to be parent-friendly and it’s a great opportunity to become more involved in, and more informed about, the decisions which affect your child’s school.
What are the aims of the parent council?
How do we represent all parents’ views and how do we keep parents informed?
- To work in partnership with the school to create a welcoming school which is inclusive for all pupils and parents.
- To promote collaborative working between parents, families, and the school.
- Develop ways to actively engage parents to support children’s education, the welfare of the pupils and improve their outcomes.
- To identify and represent the views of all parents on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and well-being of the pupils.
- To promote close co-operation and communication between parents and teachers.
- To study and discuss matters of mutual interest relating to the education and welfare of pupils.
- To engage in activities which support and advance the education of pupils attending the school.
Parents are invited to express their ideas/opinions/suggestions via committee members or through the head teacher. These are then discussed at the next meeting. The committee can then inform either the individual parent, or all the parents, of results of the meeting. The minutes from the meeting are also available on the school website or from the school office.
