The Parents Consultative Committee is one way in which St Aloysius’ College engages with its parent body across the schools.
It is an inclusive body which:
· Promotes partnership between school and parents
· Invites discussion on matters of mutual interest relating to the education and welfare of our young people
· Allows parents to learn more of aspects of school life and how the school is developing
· At times will be asked to provide a parental perspective for the Head Master and leadership team
It is not a forum for individual problems or concerns nor does it replace all the other means of communication. It is not intended to be a representative body, but it is an inclusive one open to all parents who wish to nominate themselves. Members are not expected to report back to other parents as a summary of meetings will be provided on the College website shortly after each meeting. It meets once per term (ie: three times a year) and meetings will usually take begin at 7pm and take no longer than an hour and a half.
The Committee is made up as follows:
1. There will be a maximum of two members from each year group across the whole college (with the Kindergarten having two members in total)
2. A parent may stand for the PCC for a term of no more than two years
3. It is possible to stand for a second two year term but there should be a gap of two years between each term of office (ie: no person can stand for a term longer than four years and this cannot be a continuous term)
4. It is the individual who is the member and therefore a spouse/partner/family member cannot be substituted
5. If a member is unable to attend, they should send apologies but if a member does not attend for two meetings, then it will be deemed that they are no longer wishing to be part of the group unless there are exceptional circumstances
