Parent Council

Parent Council

Welcome to the Alford Academy Parent Council.

The next Parent Council meeting will be held on Wednesday 14th June 2023 at 7pm when we will also be welcoming the new P7 parents with an option to attend virtually.


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)
  • Vice-chairperson: Joe Purkis
  • Secretary : Coralie Robertson
  • Treasurer: Dawn Brown


We meet at least once every school term; meetings are currently held on Teams but we hope to return to in person meetings soon.
