LPS PARENT COUNCIL
All parents or guardians of children at Loanhead Primary School automatically belong to our PARENT FORUM and potentially can become members.
WHO ARE PARENT COUNCIL MEMBERS?
Parents who have attended an Annual General Meeting (which are usually held in September) and have chosen to become a member. Any parent can become a member of the Parent Council. Members represent all the Parent Forum!
To support and create a welcoming environment that is inclusive of all parents and promotes relationships between the school, pupils, parents and carers. We also liaise between the council and parents when required making sure you have all the information and support needed!
FUNDRAISING – What is this for?
Fundraising has always been at the heart of our parent council – not only for the financial benefit- but as a way of engaging with our children and parents in a friendly, fun and personal way that is a fundamental part of your child’s school life.
For many years now we have managed to provide or subsidise many areas including:– Pantomime Transport, P7 Leavers Events & Gifts, Nursery Summer Outings, School Library, IT Equipment, Stationery, Class Projects, Golden Time Activities, Books, Maths Programmes, Sports Day Ice-creams, Summer Fair, Competition prizes and the list could go on…
This can only continue with ongoing support from you!
However, due to recent events fundraising must take a different approach for a while until any physical distancing restrictions are lifted; so for this reason we are very keen to try out any new ideas- for example parents might be able to host their own ‘mini fundraising events’ within their own social bubbles or on a virtual basis. This could be encouraged and supported and would be discussed on an individual basis.
More than ever we look to support our pupils and parents any way we can!
HOW CAN YOU TAKE PART?
During current times, the platform for our meetings will be on a virtual basis and anyone can join. They will be held on a weekday evening via Zoom – until further notice – about every 6 weeks and last around an hour! Dates for meetings are provided in advance on the School Newsletter, School Website, School Facebook Page or School Bulletin board.
