Parent Council

What do Parent Councils do?

The role of the Parent Council is to: 

  • support the school in its work with pupils
  • represent the views of all parents
  • encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, pre-school groups and the wider community
  • report back to all the parents in the school (called the Parent Forum)
  • play a role in the appointment of headteachers and depute headteachers
  • support the school and pupils during school inspections.

Further information on the role of Parent Councils can be found in the guidance on the Parental Involvement Act.

Achievements / Involvement of Gylemuir Parent Council

We have been instrumental in supporting the School to ensure that building improvements were undertaken.  These included roof repairs, the painting of pupil toilets and window replacement/repairs.

Members of the Parent Council are also involved in the shortlisting process for the appointment of a new Head Teacher when the need arises.
