Due to COVID-19, there are no meetings scheduled currently.
Parents' Council is the name given to our school group which organises parental support for the school.
Our parents help to foster a strong integrated ethos which is transmitted to our young people through expectations for them to achieve their true potential in an atmosphere in which the diversity of the school community is welcomed, valued and supported
Every adult who has a child enrolled at Oakwood IPS is automatically a member of our Parents' Council. The Council also includes the School Principal, who attends all meetings. We meet once a month during the school term. Parents' Council meet monthly, in the school staffroom, from 9-10am, on a Monday morning, with a cup of tea/coffee and a warm welcome. We are always looking for fresh faces and fresh ideas! Everyone welcome!
Parents' Council donated £2190 to the school in September 2020 for the purchase of 8 new class iPads.
Events which our Parents' Council organise to benefit the pupils and parents of the school are diverse and include:-
- Fund raising events e.g. Back to School Competitions, Christmas Card Designs, Community Events
- Assistance at school events e.g.Sponsored Walks, Christmas Play Nativities, Key Stage 2 Pantomime/Musicals, Super Learning Days, Sports Days, End of Term Fun Days, Nursery Graduation and P7 Leavers' Assembly.
If any parents have ideas for future fund raising events / future parent information sessions which they would like conveyed to the School Principal then please contact the Chairperson of our Parents' Council, Mrs Dawn Abbott.
