Every parent and carer at Portmoak Primary is automatically a member of the Parent Forum. The Forum meets once a year, usually late August or early September, to vote for the parents who will represent the views of parents through the Parent Council. Although this is the main way we ensure parental voice in our school, we also gather wider opinion from time to time. This can be by text, email, letter or survey.
The Parent Council (Friends of Portmoak School) are very active in support of the school and meet regularly during the school year to represent the views of parents and raise issues of general concern to other parents.
As well as the more formal Parent Council, the Events and Fundraising Team are also very active on Portmoak’s behalf by raising money for the school on a regular basis. The membership of this team is fluid, with all parents welcome at every meeting.
You can find copies of Parent Council and Events and Fundraising Team minutes on the noticeboard in the main foyer. They are also issued to all current parents by email or in paper form if this is requested.
Please contact the school if you would like more details about how to get involved with the Parent Council or Events and Fundraising Team.
