Parent Council

Supporting our school community.

All parents/carers are automatically members of the Parent Forum at St Andrew’s all parents can expect to –

  • receive information about the school and its activities;
  • hear about what partnership with parents means in our school;
  • be invited to be involved in ways and times that suit you;
  • identify issues you want the parent council, to work on with the school;
  • be asked your opinion by the parent council on issues relating to the school and the education it provides;
  • work in partnership with staff; and
  • enjoy taking part in the life of the school in whatever way possible.

The Parent Forum decides how their representatives on the Parent Council are chosen and how the Parent Council operates. You can view our constitution here. It is important to us that our Parent Council represents the rich diversity of our school community.  We warmly invite all parents to volunteer or put themselves forward as representatives on the Parent Council.

Parent Councils are different in each school to enable them to meet the needs of parents/carers locally.

The main aims of the Parent Council, currently chaired by Kerr Willis, are:

  • to support St Andrew’s in its work with pupils
  • to represent the views of parents
  • to promote contact between the school, parents, pupils, providers of nursery education and the community
  • to report to the Parent Forum
  • to be involved in the appointment of senior promoted staff
  • to raise funds for the school for the benefit of pupils
  • to organise fun events for pupils and families that build community
  • to ensure our whole community can be nurtured and inspired to flourish!
