Alford Academy Parent Council Agenda 23 Jan 23

Everyone in the Parent Forum is invited. 


As a parent council, our aim is to provide a forum for communication between the parent body and the school.  We meet on a regular basis throughout the year, at least once every school term. We welcome all parents/carers to all meetings; we would love to hear from you.

As a Parent Council, we have a statutory role to support the school.  We do this in a number of ways;

  • To work in partnership with the school to create a welcoming school which, is inclusive for all parents/carers.
  • To promote partnership between the school, its pupils and all its parents/carers.
  • To develop and engage in activities which support the education and welfare of the pupils.
  • To identify and represent the views of parents/carers on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils.
  • To report to parents on school development projects and support improvement plans by discussing the school’s strengths and areas for development from a parental perspective.
  • To work in partnership with the school to decide on the key priorities to take forward and provide a voice for parents in schools and in their local authority on issues that are important to them
  • To improve the school’s understanding of how to engage parents in their children’s learning and in the life of the school.
  • To support the school to develop strong home/school partnerships and communicate regularly with the Parent Forum to both hear their views and keep them informed.
  • To help make links with the wider community
  • To take part/organise social (and fundraising) activities that help support school initiatives and the overall health and wellbeing of pupils



  • Chairperson: Ingrid Huldal (Brown)
