Parents' Council

Introduction

Parents and the school community share as goals the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of children attending Reculver CE School. With those goals in mind, it is imperative that parents, and the school, work cooperatively to meet the needs of our children.

A key component to this cooperative arrangement is communication between parents and the school.  The Parents’ Council (parents, grandparents, carers etc) has been established to enhance communication between Reculver School and its parent body. The school wants to give parents and carers an opportunity to voice issues, and to assure them that these issues are heard and in turn respond with feed back to the parents.

The Parents' Council acts as a forum for parents' concerns, and wishes, for the future of the school.

Mission Statement

We are committed to helping the school to improve relations within the ‘School Community’ (teachers, parents and children) with a focus on effective communication between the school and parents/carers.

The Parents' Council is a body of parents that provide advice and comment on all aspects of the school to the Head Teacher.

Membership

The Parents' Council consists of representatives of each year group. The Parents' Council members are volunteers and, in some cases, elected by the parents of each year group.
