Standards & Quality Report

 

Each year the school produces a Standards & Quality Report, which highlights some of the major successes and achievements from the previous session.  You can view these HERE.

 

Stay Informed!

 

There’s a lot going on at Larbert High School, and whilst the school publishes a calendar HERE at the start of each session with key dates the most up to date version is always live on this website and via the School App.  In addition to this, all letters are directly emailed home to parents and are also published on this website HERE.

 

Most of the school’s teachers also use Twitter (your child will know the details for each of their teachers), but the main accounts to follow are as below.  If you don’t use Twitter, the main feed also appears on the home page of this website:

About the Parent Council

Parents are welcomed to be:
- involved with their child’s education and learning;
- be active participants in the life of the school; and
- express their views on school education generally and work in partnership with the school.


All parents / carers are automatically members of the Parent Forum at this school. As a member of the Parent Forum all parents can expect to –
- receive information about the school and its activities;
- hear about what partnership with parents means in our school;
- be invited to be involved in ways and times that suit you;
- identify issues you want the Parent Council to work on with the school;
- be asked your opinion by the Parent Council on issues relating to the school and the
education it provides;
- work in partnership with staff; and
-  enjoy taking part in the life of the school in whatever way possible.


Parent Councils are the formal representative body for parents / carers with children attending school. Parent Councils are different in each school to enable them to meet the needs of parents / carers locally.


The Parent Forum decides how their representatives on the Parent Council are chosen and how the Parent Council operates. Parents / carers are encouraged to volunteer or put themselves forward to be chosen as representatives of the Parent Council if they wish.


The main aims of the Parent Council are:
- To support the school in its work with pupils
- To represent the views of parents
- To promote contact between the school, parents, pupils, providers of nursery education and
the community
- To report to the Parent Forum
- To be involved in the appointment of senior promoted staff.
- To raise funds for the school for the benefit of pupils (in some schools the PTA/PA fulfils this
role).


For more information on parental involvement or to find out about parents as partners in their children’s learning, please contact the school or visit the Parentzone website at www.parentzonescotland.gov.uk
