Bruntsfield Parents
SCHOOL COMMUNITY

The Parent Forum and Parent Council

The Parent Forum is the organisation made up of and representing all parents and carers of children at Bruntsfield Primary School. It has an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where parents and carers can volunteer to become members of a smaller group, known as the Parent Council, which meets and coordinates the activities of parents across a wide range of roles, and which was established under the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006. 

In addition to running all of the after school clubs, the Parent Council also runs events throughout the year. Nominations for the Parent Council occur at the start of every school year, however there are lots of opportunities to get involved all year round (see below).

Volunteer for the Parent Council

The more parents and carers involved in our Parent Council, the better it will be for everyone. To volunteer or to send a query, please email bruntsfieldsecretary@gmail.com or use the Parent Council mailbox in the school. If you're an existing member you probably know the ropes, otherwise please study the information on this website, or speak to an existing member. Please do volunteer - together we can make a difference.
