We are Breadalbane Academy Parent Council. Our job is to provide parents and carers with a voice in the school and to enable a way to get involved in their children’s education.
We do this by carrying out the four main roles of a parent council:
- supporting the school in its work with pupils.
- representing the views of parents.
- promoting contact between school and parents.
- reporting to the parents (keeping you informed and involved).
Attend a meeting
The parent council meets every month during term time, except in December. We meet at Breadalbane Community Campus, usually in the ICT rooms, just off the library.
But any parent or carer who can’t be there in person can attend the meetings remotely, using Microsoft Teams.
Meeting dates for the 2022-2023 school year are:
- 6:30pm, Tuesday 30 August, 2022
- 7pm, Wednesday 28 September, 2022

What the parent council isn’t for
Some things are not normally the business of the parent council. This is particularly true of anything that might touch upon confidential information about a teacher or pupil.
If you have an issue with a named individual, teacher or pupil, the proper thing to do is to make a private appointment with the appropriate person in the school, for instance your child’s form teacher, the head of department, or the head teacher.
