Parent Council

The Parents’ council is a group of parent/carer representatives who meet twice each term to discuss school related issues.

Regular open communication and consultation with parents is very important to St Cuthbert’s Catholic School.


The Parents’ Council provides a valuable way to listen to our parents/carers ideas and concerns, and to seek their views, helping to make sure the needs of children and their families are met.


Meetings are led by the Chairperson with governor and the Head Teacher, are informal and a genuine opportunity for open discussion.


Sharing the information: Parents are encouraged to share the information from the Parents’ Forum with parents of other children in their child’s class. Feedback is also included in school newsletters and published on the school website.


If a parent/carer would like a representative to raise and issue, or make a suggestion on their behalf they should either ask them to do so or send a message to the school office. If there are any specific concerns about children parents/carers first point of contact is always the class teacher.


We aim to have at least one parent representing each class, to give a range of views across children’s classes and year groups. Any parent can volunteer to be on the Parents’ Council and should ask if they would like to be involved. There will be six meetings each year and dates are set at the start of the school year to give plenty of notice.
