Welcome to Viewlands Parent Council
Welcome to Viewlands Primary School Parent Council. The Parent Council (PC) is a representative body of the wider parent forum, meeting approximately every 6 weeks to encourage communication between the school, its pupils and parents/guardians.
The objectives of the Parent Council are to:
- Work in partnership with the school to create a welcoming school which is inclusive for all pupils and their parents and guardians.
- Promote partnership between the school, its pupils and all its parents and guardians.
- Develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils.
- Identify and represent the views of parents on the education provided.
What our meetings are like.
Our meetings normally take place in the teacher’s staff room. We discuss a wide range of topics, from fundraising ideas, to parking issues, to the school’s plan for the future. Each meeting the headteacher gives an update on what is happening at the school, passing on any information she feels is valuable to the parent forum. We are also regularly joined by one of the local councillors who answer questions on community issues. The meetings normally start at 7pm and are finished around 8.30pm. It really is a fantastic way to find out what is going on at the school. If you are at all interested in coming along to a meeting or joining the committee please email Carol Ann Rose (Chair) firstname.lastname@example.org for any details. We would love to hear from you.
What’s not covered
We discuss a full range of topics but they are always of a general nature. If you have any specific issues to do with your child, their teacher or fellow pupils, we would ask you to contact the school directly as this is not something we would be able to discuss at our meetings.
