Does the parent council favour Aberfeldy?

The school’s catchment area is approximately 1000 square miles. See page 4 of the school handbook.

Do you have kids at the school but live outside Aberfeldy? The school catchment area covers roughly 1000 square miles. As a parent council, we want to make sure we serve all parents — not just the ones who live close to the school.

Do we need to make more effort to include parents from outside Aberfeldy? There are a number of things we could do. For example:

  • Better publicise meetings so that parents who live further away have time to make any arrangements necessary for them to attend.
  • Look at using technology — for instance video conferencing — to make the parent council more accessible.
  • Have reps or sub-groups in Dunkeld and Pitlochry, who report their parents’ concerns and priorities to the parent council.
  • Take the parent council on the road and have some meetings in other parts of the catchment area.
