Parent Councils are now established in all Argyll & Bute primary and secondary schools.  The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 recognises the vital role that parents/carers play in supporting their children’s learning.


The basic principle underpinning the Act is the desire to have children become more ‘confident learners’ through closer working between each family and school.  It is anticipated that this can be done in three ways.  These are: -


1.  Learning at Home: direct parental involvement in the child’s learning at home and in the community.


2.  Home/School Partnership: closer working partnerships between parents/carers and the school – such partnerships being essential to ensure that the child gets maximum benefit from their school experiences.


3.  Parental Representation: Parent Councils will be parent/carer led and school supported, with all parents/carers being automatic members of the ‘Parent Forum’ and the Parent Council representing their views.


You can find out more about your Parent Council by contacting the Head Teacher.

P A E N T  C O U N C I L & PTA

The school has an active parent/teacher association which is run by a committee of parents and teachers.   Meetings are held at various times during the school year and the P.T.A. also organises fund raising events. Through its fundraising the P.T.A. is able to purchase equipment for the school and, for example, contribute funding towards the annual Primary 7 residential trips to Edinburgh. If you are interested in joining the PTA, please contact the school.  


Please can we ask as many people as possible to register with The Giving Machine, at this time of year nearly everyone uses the internet to do Christmas shopping and a huge amount of money can be raised by using this site.  All you have to do is register with your email address and log in to the website before you shop, the site has icons for all the big stores and hundreds more, all who give a decent percentage of funds from each shop you make towards the school PTA fund.  This is a really easy way to raise money not too much effort so please take a couple of minutes of your time to register and help the school raise money.  Tell all of your family and friends too the more people who use it the more money we will make.
