Our work

Breadalbane Academy Parent Council (BAPC) is a statutory body, established in accordance with the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006.

Parents don’t have to have a parent council. But if they decide they do want one, the school is legally bound to work with and listen to it.

The job of the parent council is:

  • to represent the views of parents to the school
  • to help parents work with the school, to improve outcomes for all our kids
  • to help the school communicate with and work with parents.

You can read more about the role of parent councils on this Parentzone Scotland web page.

The parent council’s work is also guided by a set of values, adopted by a majority vote. These tie in closely with the values of the school. You can see them here:
