Abbeyhill Parents

Abbeyhill Primary School & Nursery Parents Forum & Parent Teacher Council

Parents make a real difference

Parents and carers are the most important influence throughout a child’s education and parental involvement in learning makes a real difference to children’s achievements.

Everyone benefits (children, parents and teachers) when parents and schools work effectively together to support learning.

You’re in the Forum

All parents and carers of children at Abbeyhill Primary School & Nursery are members of the Parent Forum and have:

  • a right to advice and information about your child’s education
  • the opportunity to be more involved with what the school is doing
  • and the opportunity to have your views represented through the Abbeyhill Parent Council

Parent Council

We’re a smaller group of parents who volunteer to:

  • to promote close co-operation and communication between parents and teachers
  • to promote equality and fairness
  • to study and discuss matters of mutual interest relating to the education and welfare of pupils
  • to engage in activities which support and advance the education of pupils attending the school
  • play a role in the appointment of headteachers and depute headteachers
  • to support the school and pupils during school inspections
  • to represent the views of the Parent Forum

What we’ve been up to recently

Uniform exchange

Twice a year we wash and sell on items of school uniform at just 50p per item. A great way to recycle unwanted clothes when they’re too small to wear again.


We’re currently raising funds to improve the playground as requested by the pupil council. Recently we’ve supported travel to the annual pantomime outing and a Christmas show trip for the nursery.


Bringing parents and the school together for fun, learning and to celebrate our vibrant school community.

Playground tidy

Around 40 parents, teachers and pupils came to litter pick, paint, prune and plant to make the playground nicer for eveeryone. Thank you!
