Parent Council

What is Parent Council?

Parent Council has one common goal: to ensure the children at Hill West have the best possible experience at school.

All parents are welcome to join Parent Council’s regular meetings where key issues and ideas for development and improvement to the school as a whole are discussed with a member of the Headship Team in an open, frank and decisive way.  Both parents and school staff are able to raise topics for discussion; it is very much a two-way forum.

How can I get involved?

Parent Council meet once per month and everyone is welcome to come along – please email if you are interested in taking part or would like to raise a topic or idea for discussion.  Dates of meetings are published on our termly events calendar.

Please note that Parent Council is not a mechanism for dealing with complaints or issues that affect individual children.
