Establishing lifelong learning: rooted in knowledge, enriched by experience
The aim of the Alexandra Primary School Parent Council is to provide a direct link between parents and the school in the hope that we can help Alexandra develop and grow together.
Every parent can contribute to the Council as a ‘General Member’ and with the help of the Parent Council Members representing their individual classes this will ensure that the voices of a wide range of parent and carers can be heard. The list of members is attached below.
PARENT COUNCIL IS:
- Constructive - Meeting are conducted in a positive spirit and are solutions focused
- Impartial – class members will seek and represent the views of all parents in their child’s class
- Two way – as well as passing parent views on the school, class members will provide another communication channel for school to parents
- Not a decision maker – The Governing Body continues to provide the strategic leadership of the school
- Not a channel for complaints – class members do not pursue personal grievances or complaints
