The Role of the Parent Partnership
The Parent Partnership is the formal body which represents all parents and carers of pupils at Dalkeith High School. The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 makes provision for all parents to be members of the Parent Forum at a school, and to have their views represented to the school, education authority and others, through a representative Parent Council for the school.
The Act aims to help all parents to be:
- involved in their child’s education and learning
- welcomed as active participants in the life of the school
- encouraged to express their views on school education generally and work in partnership with the school.
Midlothian Council has developed guidance for Parent Partnerships, including a support pack to assist with the establishment of a Parent Partnership.
All meetings of the Parent Partnership are open to any parent and dates of the meetings will be published in the school newsletters, posted on the school website and advertised on Twitter.
Contact details for the Parent Partnership office bearers are:
Parent Partnership Co-Chair: Ed Jupp & Helen Beardsley
Parent Partnership Secretary: Joanne Arneil
Parent Partnership Treasurer: Julia Critchly
The Facebook account is managed and updated by members of our Parent Partnership and not by the school, therefore any comments should be communicated through the Facebook administrators.
