What is Parent Council?

Shacklewell Parent Council is a forum to air your ideas, views or concerns about issues that affect children and parents at the school.

It is an opportunity to hear about things that are going on at school outside your child's year group and is a way of communicating to parents all the great things that happen at our school.

Points raised during Parent Council meetings are discussed with the school so they can come back to the Council with feedback and solutions.

When does Parent Council meet?

Once every half term on a Friday at 9am in the Community Room.

Dates can be found on the calendar below, in school newsletters and are also sent out by text and in our mailing list.

Can I go to a meeting?

Yes! All parents/carers/grandparents are welcome. Meetings are open to everyone.

How is the agenda put together?

Agenda items are raised with the Chair, Nicola Palmer or with Betty or Michaela in the school office at least two weeks before a Council meeting.

Items must relate to the school body/groups of the school body.

Individual children’s concerns should be raised with the class teacher.

Do I have to go to a meeting to raise something I want to talk about?

Not if you don’t want to. You can email Parent Council or talk to Betty or Michaela if you don’t want to come to the meeting. You can raise points anonymously.

How do I contact Parent Council?

By email , speak to Betty or Michaela at the school office or speak to Nicola Palmer in the playground.
