Through out the 2018 – 2019 term the council:

  • Represented parents on the selection panel interviewing for the Deputy Head Teachers Positions
  • Discussed the schools communication and how it can be improved
  • Had a preview of the new Parent Pay system which was launched in November 2017
  • Suggested and implemented improvements to the running of Sports Day
  • Liaised with the School Leadership Team to allow the  “Persevered” tour into the school
  • Introduced a number of guest speakers including Councillors, covering topics such as Housing Development, School intakes and Catchment areas

We also have a Fundraising Group which meets generally on the last Friday of every month headed by Sarah Beck.

Money raised by the group have allowed us to fund:

  • Upgrades to the school playground
  • The P6 trip to the Christmas Panto
  • The Fun Day
  • New gym equipment
  • The book bags given to every new pupil
  • P7 Dictionaries
  • Magnetic Letters for Early Years


We aim to do a lot more in the coming months but to do this we need our membership to grow……
