Your Parent Council Needs You!!

Here is the slide compiled by the Parent Council for Meet the Teacher night. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, the following tells you what the Parent Council does and how you can get involved.

Your Parent Council Needs You!!

Parental involvement is key to the success of our school and we really need some more parents/carers to join the Parent Council.

We are always looking for new ideas

Meetings are friendly, informal and relaxed

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings and your assistance in supporting and helping with our many events is invaluable.

Who Are The Parent Council?

The parent council is made up of Parents and Carers who have children at Lasswade Primary School

We have around 6 or 7 meetings a year

We help support the school and raise any concerns connected with the development and procedures in the school.

The Parent Council represents the Parent Forum which parents/carers automatically become members of whilst their child is at the school.

What Does The Parent Council Do?

Promote co-operation between parents and teachers in everything pertaining to the well being of the school and the pupils

Raise any concerns from parents with the school.

Work with the school to improve the facilities available.

Organise events to raise funds for additional School equipment  and encourage the development of social activities among parents and teachers.

Organise school Disco’s/Fun nights for children

Give input where required to assist the school in making decisions.

 Co-operate with other Parent Councils among the Scottish Parent Teacher Council.
