Update from Moffat Academy Parent Council
Please join us!
As the new academic year kicks off your Parent Council is delighted to welcome all new and existing parents & guardians to join meetings, policy conversations and social and fundraising activities. And don’t worry if you can’t make the actual meetings; there is always plenty of chat at the school gate, at school events, on our Facebook page and on email & messenger. Please see below for future meeting dates and contact details.
We need your ideas!
We rely on you the parents and guardians, teachers and pupils for input into how we can best represent the parent forum in policy conversations and how to maximise fundraising on behalf of all pupils. Please share your input and ideas in person, online, by email or via the suggestions box, details all as below.
Not sure what a parent council is?
The Scottish Government provides the following guidance:
Last year we raised a total of £3,720.83 all of which went towards enhancing the pupils’ learning experiences in different ways and this year we hope to do even more. Please keep an eye out for notices on the school door, the outdoor school notice board (by the bike racks) and on the school/ parent council Facebook pages to stay up to date with meetings and activities.

Keeping You Updated – How Can we Contact You?
We want to hit the right balance between bombarding parents with messages but also keeping you informed and updated. We plan to post information such as event posters, meeting notices, agendas and minutes on our Facebook page and on the outdoor school notice board (by the bike racks) but if you would also like us to email you directly please let us know by emailing email@example.com. You can also request copies of meeting minutes from the school office.
We really look forward to sharing a productive and busy new academic year with you all.
Your Parent Council
