Trinity Primary School Parent Council is a key part of the school’s community. We are a small and friendly group of parents who represent your views, concerns and ideas to the school, to the City of Edinburgh Council and to other relevant organisations.
We support the school in its work with the pupils and report back to you, the Trinity parents and carers. We meet regularly with Headteacher Mrs Scott as well as other members of senior management and local Councillors to discuss a wide range of issues.
We are looking for parents to join us and take an active part in sharing your views and making inputs to important decisions. We have acted on your behalf on a range of issues, including:
Helping the school community to navigate School at Home during lockdown, organising regular briefing meetings with Mrs Scott and providing parents with an opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions.
Representing Trinity Primary School families to all those making decisions about education during the Covid-19 pandemic, including the Scottish Government, the City of Edinburgh Council and the National Parent Forum Scotland.
Organising a health and wellbeing evening for parents (when meetings at school were still possible!) to provide information about the new Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenting Curriculum for primary pupils.
Providing input into the design of “The Pavilion”, opened as the P7 learning space in 2018.
Persuading the Council to create an additional outdoor learning space at in Victoria Park.
Working with the Parent Council at Trinity Academy to support the redevelopment of the cluster high school.
Being invited to join Trinity Community Council, strengthening our links with the local community.
Contributing to Scottish Government and City of Edinburgh Council consultations, including stating our opposition to cuts in school budgets.
