The Parent Council is a group of parents selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents of children at a school. 

Every school's Parent Council will be potentially unique because it is the parents in each school who decide such things as:

  • how their Parent Council will be set up
  • what it should be called
  • what size it should be
  • who should be a member of the Parent Council e.g. should it include co-opted members?
  • how they should be appointed
  • when the most convenient time is to hold meetings
  • what will be discussed at meetings
