As with all Parent Council meetings, all parents/carers of Maddiston Nursery/Primary/Timezone are welcome to attend our next meeting on Thursday 6th December at 18.30 in the staff room; however to make this more manageable, if you do not regularly attend the Parent Council, please can you indicate below if you are interested in attending our next meeting. If you are unable to attend but would like to share your thoughts and questions, you can do so by contacting us via this page, email or by speaking with our co-chairs Karen Edwards and Sobia McGuire. Our co-chairs will be attending two meetings about proposed budget cuts for Parent Council chairs, firstly on Monday 26th November then on Tuesday 4th December, we will feed back to you on the outcomes. Thank you for your continued support.
We are always keen to get new parents on board to keep it fresh and interesting. Your Parent Council is a group of parents who represent parent views and work in partnership with school staff and the local authority to achieve the best for all pupils. Having a Parent Council allows the collective view of parents to be represented on matters such as the quality and standards of education at your child’s school and other matters of interest. Local councillors attend our meetings on a regular basis which provides a useful link to local authority priorities. The Parent Council meet approximately 6 times per year.
Our Head Teacher Mrs Claire McGlynn will continue to bring change and an opportunity to strengthen the wider school community.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact our Clerk on 0785 982 6119, alternatively send a message to us via our email address.
