Parent Council

Welcome to the Parent Council’s webpage!

The school recently set up a Parent Council to give parents a voice in the school and to encourage more active participation in all matters Powell Corderoy! Parents are given the chance to meet up together and talk about the things that matter to them. During recent meetings we have discussed After School Care, the provision of swimming lessons and uniform. Although the Parent Council is not a decision making body, it certainly represents an excellent opportunity for the parent body to influence change within the school, so please do get involved.

Whilst all meetings are open and everyone is welcome we have appointed two Class Representatives from each year to ensure that all age groups are represented. For the remainder of this year these are:

Duckling Class (Reception)

Mrs Kay Bull and Mrs Rachel Thomas

Owl Class (Year 1)

Nicola Bolger and Laura Duffell

Robin Class (Year 2)

Julie-Anne, Keira’s mum and Gayle Banks

Kingfisher Class (Year 3)

Dawn Dudley and Claire Taylor

Ibis Class (Year 4)

Louise Dawson and Sandra Watkins

Nightingale Class (Year 5)

Antonia Swinson and Patricia Ross

Goldfinch Class (Year 6)

Jess Rise and Sarah Jones

Meeting dates are published well in advance through Headlines and ParentMail. Flyers are also posted on the notice board in the playground as a reminder. There is always a published agenda which sets out the focus of the discussions that will take place. If you have any thoughts or comments please share these with your Class Representative, use the comments box in the school office, send an email to or come along to the meetings.

We will publish the minutes from each meeting and any newsletters giving vital updates on progress so far on this page.
