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 holds meetings at least six times a year, at the Breadalbane Community Campus. All meetings start at 6:30pm and are held in the ICT Room.
Meeting dates for the 2019-2020 school year are:
- Monday 9 September
- Wednesday 20 November
- Thursday 30 January
- Thursday 27 February
- Wednesday 25 March
- Thursday 2 June

The ASN Parents’ Group
The ASN Parents’ Group provides help and advice to parents of children with additional support needs.
For more information or to get involved, email email@example.com.
The fundraising and opportunities group (FOG)
The fundraising and opportunities group (FOG) raises money for clubs, sports, extra-curricular activities, and anything else that gives Breadalbane kids the chance to expand their horizons, have fun, and build on what they learn in the classroom.
Besides being involved in fundraising, FOG also looks for other opportunities for parents and the wider community to get involved with the school, and vice versa.
The FOG group provide updates to Parent Council Meetings, dates as above.

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.
