What do we mean by parental involvement? Three elements: Learning at home parents are the first and ongoing educators of their own children Home/School Partnership schools, parents and the community working together to educate children Parent representation parents have an opportunity to have their views represented Parental Involvement Act, 2007
What is the Parent Council? The St Peter’s Parent Council brings together parents, carers, school staff and other members of the school community to support the school. Its aims are: to create a welcoming and inclusive school to promote partnership to have Gospel values at the heart of all we do to identify and represent parents' views to support our children's education in practical ways and fundraise to apply for and obtain grants to support the school
Collaboration and representation A school is good to the extent that… A school is excellent to the extent that… It consults parents on key issues relating to school life and provision. What parents think is important for the school and for their own children has a significant influence on the school’s vision. They help to formulate and agree with the school’s priorities for improvement. It actively seeks out the views of parents and the wider community on its strengths and areas for development. It consults effectively with parents on the improvements and changes it is planning. It asks them for formal feedback on specific events, the quality of education, school leadership and on the way the school is run. It ensures that parents are fully involved as it implements its plans for improvement. It involves parent representatives alongside pupils and staff in identifying improvements. Parents are confident in contributing ideas, expressing concerns and making suggestions. Parent representatives communicate regularly with the rest of the parent body, systematically canvassing opinions and views.
