Parent Council

Welcome to the home page for the St Joseph's Parent Council.   The Parent Council is a group of parents whose aims are to create an inclusive and welcoming school environment. We do that by working as a partnership made up of parents, teachers and pupils aiming to make St Joseph's Primary School the best it can be for all the children.


Whilst not being a decision-making body, the school really wanted to make a serious effort to allow parents the opportunity to interact with school.  We have one parent councillor per year group who is able to bring suggestions etc to the meeting.  They can be contacted through school or they have their own phone and email address.  They also have their own twitter feed.


So...... what do we do?


The Parent Council …


  • is an important route of communication between teachers, parents and the pupils

  • works to improve parental involvement within the school

  • helps the school determine important school matters – School Development Plan, Bullying Policy, Homework Policy, Curriculum for Excellence etc

  • Parents who take on a supportive role in their child’s learning make a huge difference in improving achievement and behaviour.


If you like the sound of that then we’d like you to be a part of it.The Parent Council exists to represent and involve parents with the school to the benefit of all the children in the school.
