Parent Councils play an active role in supporting parental involvement in the work and life of the school, while also providing opportunities for parents to express their views on children’s education and learning. At Mount Pleasant Primary we are extremely fortunate to have an active and supportive Parent Council.
The Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents of children at a school. Teachers and other Highland Council staff may also attend these meetings. The Parent Council also has Office Bearers who are elected at the AGM, which is held in October.
The Parent Council is there to represent the parents/carers of children at the school. Mount Pleasant Primary School Parent Council welcomes all parents from Nursery upwards to get actively involved in helping with fundraising, school events and meetings; these are usually held once per term.
Activities which the Parent Council may be involved in include:
- supporting the work of the school
- gathering and representing parents’/carers’ views to the Head Teacher, Education Authority and HMIe
- promoting contact between the school, parents/carers, children and young people and the local community
- involvement in the appointment of Senior School Staff
