The Parent Forum is the parents and carers of children who attend Bruntsfield Primary School. All parents and carers are automatically members. The Parent Forum has an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where parents and carers can volunteer to become members of a smaller group, known as the Parent Council.
The Parent Council is the business committee of the Forum which organises and coordinates the activities of the Parent Forum and was established under the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006. It is made up of elected and co-opted office bearers, and a number of regular members.
The Parent Council exists to
- facilitate communication between the parents and the school management;
- organise and run a range of activity clubs which are accessible to all children in the school;
- organise and run a range of fundraising activities and social events.
We also have a number of special interest sub groups, which sit within the Parent Forum but are separate to the Parent Council.
