Harris Academy Parent Council

Last night I attended a very productive meeting of Harris Academy Parent Council at the school's new Lawton Road base, the school's home during the rebuild programme at Perth Road.

It was reported that pupils and staff have settled in well at Lawton Road and there was a very useful update on this and other matters from the two new school captains.

We had an extensive discussion about the on-going school transport issues and also relative to school crossing patrollers (SCPs).    I continue to raise with the City Council issues regarding the bus arrangements and was in correspondence this week with the City Council's Education Department about the need for more SCPs at Lawton Road, including at lunchtimes.

The Parent Council has a very active Facebook page and the Parent Council Chair has a Twitter account, which, alongwith the school's website, provides very useful information and updates for parents and pupils of the school.
