Parent Council

St Mary's Primary School PTA (Parent Council)

Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences on children's lives and when parents and schools work together, children do better. With that common belief, St Mary's Parent Teacher Association has been running for a number of years and continues to enjoy supporting the school in a wide variety of ways.

Fundraising, for example, is just one of the areas where we can be most effective, by organising events like the annual Bingo Night and the Summer Fun Day we can help raise funds that help make special occasions at the school, like the Pupils Christmas Parties, extra special. We understand that not everybody can spare the time to become actively involved or attend our regular meetings, however the families, carers, and friends of our pupils always generously support the events organised by the PTA. The Head Teacher and other staff members regularly attend our meetings and if as a parent/carer you would like to come along to one of our meetings you would be most welcome. Please check the  Upcoming Events or Calendar section for details of our next meeting.

All parents/carers of children attending St Mary's are automatically members of the Parents Forum, and as a member you have certain rights under the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006. Under the terms of this legislation, St Mary's PTA is referred to as a Parent Council and has certain obligations, one of which was to draft a new constitution, which is available on this site.
