Parent Council

Castleview Primary School Parent Council is open to all parents of Castleview.  Meetings are held throughout the school session and are a great way to get involved in the life of your childs school.    All parents are welcome to attend any of the scheduled Parent Council meetings but if you would like to take on a more active role within our Parent Council please give your details into the school office or send them by email to and we will  contact you.

Please see the Agenda & Minutes page for the latest minutes and future meeting dates.

We are currently looking for Parents to help chair the meetings.  There are approximate 6-8 meetings every year and do not take up too much of your time.

Please refer to the Parent Council Roles page on the website for details of the roles available and other general Guidance.

NEGLECT – Survey from Edinburgh Child Protection Committee & NSPCC Scotland

Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect.  As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting.  We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete.  By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe.   Closing date for responses is 18 March. 

Scottish Attainment Challenge – This is a huge initiative across Scotland and Castleview is hoping to be successful in our bid to be part of this.  As part of this Councillor Angela Constance has written to all Parent Council Chairs.  Please see the letter below.   We have also added a link to  the Scottish Government page where you can access information and links to events and the Draft Framework Document.
