Parent representatives

Parent Directors and Parent Representatives represent the voice of a parent not the voice of the parents. Their primary expertise is as a parent.

One parent representative is elected for each school of the Federation, from which two parent directors are appointed onto the board of directors. There are also two parent representatives on each governance hub advisory board, one from each educational hub. 

Parent representatives are linked to three schools: the one attended by their children and the two other schools within their educational hub. They undertake monitoring visits to both schools in trios and report the outcome of their visits to the board of directors. The focus of the visits is set by the board of directors.


The current parent representatives are listed below.
