Information for parents and carers
We are drafting text that colleagues can use when communicating with parents and carers about RSHP learning. Our intention is to provide draft text for each Curriculum for Excellence Level. We would like to see what you already provide, this could be across Levels or aimed at a specific year group. Do you have leaflets or presentations that you could share? These will be treated in confidence. You could also just tell us what would be really helpful. Send us an email with any attachments or weblinks: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your favourite books
We are compiling lists of recommended books for your class, school or centre library. We want to hear from you about what you already provide and what you know the children, young people and parents/carers love to borrow, hear or read that supports RSHP learning. Send us an email or weblinks: email@example.com
Early Level learning
So far, this Level has only been populated with the topics or themes that we want to consider when it comes to RSHP learning. We want to think about the learning at this Level in a different way from the ‘learning activity’ model we have used at other Levels. If you have any material, programmes, resources or anything else that currently supports your work at Early Level, please let us know. Again, your contributions will be treated with confidence and we are happy to credit any sources where appropriate. In advance, thank you! Send us an email, weblinks, etc: firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done to Primary 1, Thornliebank Primary School on winning the 2018 East Renfrewshire Name the Teddy competition.
Winning name: Cotton Candy
The “Jenny and the Bear” story book and Name the Teddy competition, are part of a co-ordinated programme which aims to increase awareness of the effects of secondhand smoke on children and what parents/carers can do to ensure their children are not exposed to its harmful effects.
This is a Scottish wide campaign to stop young people being given Tobacco. Most young people who smoke get their cigarettes from friends, family and other people they know which can then lead them into a life of addiction, ill health and money worries.
The Campaign is part of a wider effort for Scotland to become “tobacco free” by 2034.
