The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act became law in September 2006.  It recognises the vital role which parents can play in their children's education and aims to encourage and support more parents to become involved.

The most obvious change was that School Boards ceased to exist in June 2007.  Instead all parents automatically became members of the Parent Forum at their child's school and are entitled to have a say in what happens at the school.  Each parent can expect to: 

  • get information about what their child is learning 
  • get information about events at the school 
  • get advice and help on how they can support their child's learning 
  • be told about opportunities to be involved in the school 
  • have a say in selecting a Parent Council to work on behalf of all parents at the school  

 The Parent Council's role will be to : 

  • support the school in its work with pupils 
  • represent the views of all parents 
  • encourage links between the school, parents, pupils, the church and the wider community 
  • report back to the Parent Forum 

Parent Council Members 

The Parent Council consists of parent, staff and Church representatives.  Members can be contacted via the school office or at office@turnbull.e-dunbarton.sch.uk
