Bell Baxter Parent Council
Welcome to the Bell Baxter Parent Council’s website. The Parent Council supports the school in its work with pupils; represents the views of all parents; encourages links between the school, parents, pupils and the wider community; reports back to all parents in the school (Parent Forum), and supports the school and pupils during inspections.
If you would like to get involved with the work of the Parent Council, or you would simply like to find out more about the group, you can contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, a message can be left at the school office on (01334) 659459.
The Parent Council meets on a regular basis with staff from the school.

The Parent Council have been successful in raising well over £1000 through the many initiatives which they run throughout the school year. This money was used to gift a new school tie to each S1 pupil to welcome them to the school and encourage them to support the school’s uniform policy.
We are pleased to confirm that we have again raised enough funds to gift a tie to all forthcoming S1 pupils who started in August 2016.

Pre-Owned Blazers - Update
If you have a used Bell Baxter blazer that you no loner require, you can choose to donate it to the Parent Council: donated blazers can be handed into the Main Office. These blazers will then be sold on and the Parent Council will keep the proceeds for donation to the school at a later date.
The Parent Council is not offering the service of selling used blazers and then passing on the purchase money to the individual from whom the blazer was received.
Individuals who wish to sell used blazers for their own profit already have a number of options available to them.
For further information, please contact the Parent Council by email on or by phoning the school's Main Office on 01334 659459.
Blazers can be handed into the school office.
