AGM Minutes, 8th October 2018

Shawlands Academy Parent Teacher Council (PTC) works with the school to improve the education and welfare of all young people at Shawlands Academy and specifically to help:

·        create a welcoming school, inclusive for all our young people and their families / carers;

·        promote partnership between the school, pupils and parents;

·        represent the views of parents / carers on the education provided by the school and other matters affecting the education and welfare of the pupils; and, to

·        develop and engage in activities to support the education and welfare of pupils.


The Parent Teacher Council (PTC) discuss items that relate to the school as a whole or years groups – not issues regarding individual young people. It can and does raise issues on behalf of parents / carers as well as representing the view of parents’ to Glasgow City Council and local Councillors. 


ALL Parents are welcome to attend ALL PTC meetings; you can ask the PTC to discuss particular issues (not ones related to individual young people however) or come along and speak to it (by pre-informing the Secretary).  The PTC aims to be as open and accessible as possible to all parents / carers of young people at Shawlands Academy.


The PTC is run by parents and parent members hold the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary positions.  These roles are elected annually at the meeting of the Parent Forum (PTC AGM), which is usually held in October.  Every parent and carer of young people at Shawlands Academy is automatically a member of the Parent Forum.
