Every school in Scotland, secondary and primary, should have a Parent Council. Parent Councils were established by the Scottish Government in 2007, to replace the previous School Board structure, carrying out some of the work which a School Board used to do, and other jobs too.
At St Augustine’s High School, our Parent Council looks after both official parental liaison with the school and also representing the opinions of parents to stakeholders on the local and national stage. Recently, we have campaigned on a number of issues, such as local road safety issues, and also Scotland-wide policy matters. We aim to make sure parents have a say in the appointment of senior staff at the school, we represent the views of parents to the school on school policy matters which affect us all. We also work closely with the school’s Senior Leadership Team on a number of projects.
We’re all volunteers – parents and carers of pupils at St. Augustine’s High School who take part in Parent Council activities on an entirely voluntary basis. We’re always happy for more parents and carers to become involved. To get in touch, please contact us care of the School Office. We would be very happy to hear from any parents who wish to find out more, or want to join the Parent Council.
