Welcome to Dean Park Primary School’s Parent Council pages.
The Parent Council develops a partnership between the school and the Parent Forum. Every parent is included in the Parent Forum and our statutory committee is appointed by the Parent Forum to run matters on their behalf.
We communicate information about the school, decide on the format of the Parent Council and how it operates, identify issues for the Parent Council, we will ask the Parent Forum for views and opinions and express views through the Parent Council.
We also incorporate teachers, Mrs Shanks as an advisor, co-opted members and local councillors. We usually hold our meetings in the school staff room on Monday evenings between 7pm and 9pm and the dates are on the school calendar. Any parent of a pupil at Deanpark Primary School is welcome to attend. We also attend special meetings with other local Parent Councils and Edinburgh Council local community meetings too. We also work with the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA), when appropriate, to achieve results.
You can contact us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), through letter to the school, at Parent Consultation evenings and through Parent Members. Our members are listed on these pages with a photograph to help you find us!
We are happy to help wherever we can and support the school to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our children and the local community.
