Recognising Achievement

Gaining recognition for the wide range of achievements can increase pupil confidence, raise their aspirations, improve motivation for learning and keep them engaged in education. It is important that we recognise and celebrate achievements in all contexts for learning, through:

• the ethos and life of the school as a community
• curriculum areas and subjects
• interdisciplinary learning
• opportunities for personal achievement.

To help us gather this information on pupils’ personal achievements, I would ask you to follow the link below and provide the information required:

This link will remain live throughout session 2017-18. You can add achievements as often as required by entering your child’s name, class and details of their achievement. We then track each child’s participation in clubs and achievements both within and outwith school.

You may have noticed in the media this week that Early Years Scotland, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and the Daily Record, has been extensively promoting and advertising our exciting first ever Careers Morning.

Early Years Scotland has been funded by SDS to organise and deliver this event to support the national expansion of the ELC workforce by 2020.

We would like to ask you to share this invitation with anyone you feel may be interested in coming along. The link below can be used to book a FREE space. A crèche (also free) is available, and can be booked when registering.

You would of course be most welcome to come along too if you have time and availability on Thursday 1 February. We would ask that you also follow the link to book a space.

I look forward to welcoming everyone on the day!
