Parents, carers and family members are by far the most important influences on children's lives.

After all, between the ages of 5 and 16 children spend only 15% of their time in school!  Research shows that when parents are involved in their child's learning, children do better at school and throughout life.

The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 gives parents the right to receive information about their children's education and to be represented and have their views expressed through the Parent Council.

The St Nicholas’ Primary Parent Council was established in September 2018.  This group is a good opportunity for parents to express their views, to raise the issues that are important to them, to be taken seriously, to get a proper response to their requests and questions, and understand better what goes on at school.

The Parent Council is composed of parents, school staff and co-opted members from the local parishes and community.  The Head Teacher has a duty and a right to attend all meetings.
