WORMIT PARENT COUNCIL
Who are we?
What do we do?
The Parent Council was established in September 2007, its’ objectives are:
- To work in partnership with the school to create a welcoming school which is inclusive for all parents
- To promote partnership between the school, its pupils and all its parents
- To develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils
- To identify and represent the views of parents on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.
A copy of the Parent Council constitution is available from the school office and our AGM which is open to all parents is in May.
Where can you contact us?
If you have anything you would like the Parent Council to discuss please feel free to approach any member of the council. You can also e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or pass a message to us through the school office.
We will be having a page on the school website where you can find minutes of our meetings and other information about us and what we have been doing. We will also be using the school newsletter, or we may write to you directly, if there is an issue where we would like your views.
