- Every parent is a member of the Parent Forum –
The membership of the Campie Parent Forum is made up of all parents/carers at Campie School. Being a member of the Parent Forum allows you to have a say in the local arrangements at Campie to enable your collective view to be represented on matters such as the quality and standards of education at the school and other matters of interest. One of the ways you will be able to express your views will be through the “Parent Council”
- Campie Parent Council
The Campie Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Campie Parent Forum to represent all the parents of children at Campie school. The type of things Campie Parent Council are involved in include: supporting the work of the school, gathering and representing parents’ views to the Head Teacher and/or Education Authority,promoting contact between the school, parents, pupils and the local community, involvement in the appointment of senior school staff, and fundraising for the School and deciding how funds are spent.
The Parent Council has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children’s education. So, the school and the local authority must listen to what the Parent Council says and give it a proper response.
