What is it?

It is a forum for parents to come together and support the development of the school.


It is a way of: ‘creating a forum of parents which cultivates and focuses parental support for the school’   (NICIE Statement of Principles)

It is a channel of communication between parents and school


Why do we need one?

Brings parents together to discuss support for the school’s development

In the Memorandum and Articles of Association it states:

 “There shall be a Parents Council whose function shall include the mobilisation and organisation of parent support for the school”         (Article 38)

The NICIE Statement of Principles says:

“The support and commitment of parents is a fundamental element

 of integrated education and historically, parents have been central

 to the development of integrated schools.”



Who should be on it?


All parents are members of the Parents’ Council – though this does not mean that all parents attend the meetings


In the Memorandum and Articles of Association it states:

 “The Parents’ Council shall consist of at least 10 parents elected at the Annual General Meeting ensuring representation of each form in the school and having  regard to balance in respect of the gender and religious traditions of those elected.”

                                                                                (Article 39)

 Setting up Parents Council

Establish a strong connection with the Board of Governors through having 2 nominated governors representatives working with Parents Council

Ensure that the work of Parents Council is an agenda item at each Board of Governor meeting

Structure of Parents Council

                              2 governor representatives

                              2 parents /carers from each class within the school

                              The group should elect a chairperson, vice-chairperson and secretary

                              The role of the governor is to report to the full BOG on the work of Parents Council
