Parent Council

Information

By law schools have a duty to promote parents’ involvement in children’s and young people’s education. At Stranraer Academy we are really keen to extend an invitation to all parents/carers to participate and contribute to the life of the school, to make the School as good as it can be. The work of the Parent Council is crucial in maintaining and improving the learning environment for our children. The objectives of the Stranraer Parent Council are;

  • To work in partnership with the school and community, to create a welcoming school which is inclusive for all parents/carers
  • To promote partnership between the school, its pupils and all its parents/carers
  • To develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils
  • To identify and represent the views of parents/carers on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.

The Parent Council meets approximately every 4 weeks, on the second Tuesday of the month at 6.30 pm in the Conference Room, so please join us for tea/coffee.

The Parent Council helps to create an environment where all parents know that their views matter, and where they feel confident and comfortable putting them forward. They work on behalf of all parents to discuss educational matters that are of importance to all. They do not get involved in individual matters relating to children or staff in the school.

Further information about the role of the Parent Council can be found in Section 2 of the Parent Council resource below.
