Parent Rep Group
Since 2015 when we introduced our first parent rep’s, the group has gone from strength to strength. We have now expanded the group even further so that we have two reps per year group.
The role of a parent rep is primarily concerned with helping the school to build and maintain a sense of community within our school.
To help build and maintain clear communications between the parents/carers and teachers of each class/year group.
To help the SLT and staff team to build a sense of community and to foster positive parental partnerships
Introduce new families to other parents/carers in the class/year group and help integrate them into the school community in association with teachers
It is a purely voluntary role and as a school we continue to be extremely grateful for the time that our team of reps dedicate to their positions.
Reps carry out a number of tasks, some of which include
- attending a meeting each half term with Mrs Elliott or Mrs Hutchison to share feedback and gather parental views
- attending new parents evening in the summer term and helping new families settle in
- helping class teachers to recruit parent/carer volunteers for activities and events throughout the year eg, accompanying school trips, assisting with school productions (costumes, make-up, props etc), helping with sea swimming
- managing and maintaining year group Facebook pages, adding content to aid communication with parents and carers, answering comments and queries etc
Year Group Facebook Pages
Parent Reps have created closed Facebook groups and only parents/carers of children who are currently on the school roll can be invited to join the group. Reps monitor pages regularly and remove any posts that are offensive or critical of any individual. If you are not a member of these pages and would like to join please speak to your rep.
Our current parent rep group is shown below. As you can see we do have a couple of vacancies. If anyone is interested in joining the group please speak to a current rep or to Mrs Elliott. (Alison.Elliott@lamare-pri.sch.gg)
