Supporting the Parent Forum for the benefit of everyone at Linlithgow Academy

The Scottish Schools (Parent Involvement) Act 2006 makes provision for the involvement of parents in their children's education and in school education generally. The Act also outlines the establishment of a Parent Council made up of parents representing the views of the Parent Forum as a whole. 

Who are the Parent Forum? All parents, carers or guardians who have a child at Linlithgow Academy are members of the Parent Forum. Everyone is invited to attend meetings and all contributions are welcomed. Agendas, minutes and a copy of the constitution can be found below.

What is the Parent Council? The Parent Council represents the voice of the Parent Forum. It promotes communication, school improvement and partnership. Every parent/carer with a child at Linlithgow Academy is a member of the Parent Forum and can ask about joining Parent Council. The structure and composition of the Linlithgow Academy Parent Council is detailed in the Linlithgow Academy Parent Council constitution (PDF) [698KB] (opens new window) .
