Welcome to Parent Councils UK

How can parents have a voice within schools?
How can schools find out what parents think?
How can parents get involved in school life to support their children’s education?

When parents are involved in their child’s learning and in the life of the school, children do better. This is borne out by a growing body of research. Parental involvement is thus a key lever for school improvement.

Parent councils and parent forums offer a way of enabling parents to have a voice within schools. They give parents the opportunity to contribute to policy making on issues which affect them and also to play their part in improving children’s learning.

Schools which work in a genuine partnership with parents have found that this can have a transformational effect on school culture by strengthening the feelings of ownership and commitment of the local community.
