GOLD AWARD FOR SGOIL A’ BHAC STAFF!

Staff at Sgoil a’ Bhac were this week presented with a Gold Award following a successful Gold assessment under the Healthy Working Lives programme, which is delivered by NHS Health Scotland, a national NHS Board in collaboration with Scotland’s 14 local NHS Boards.
The NHS’s Assessor Jenny Hill stated that “The assessment gave me a great insight into the work of Sgoil a’ Bhac and allowed the opportunity to see the clear and continual commitment of the school to a healthy, safer workplace.” She added “This is a great achievement for the school as other than NHS Western Isles, there are currently no other Gold Award holders in Lewis and Harris and only one other in Uist. As recipients of the Gold Award the staff have demonstrated a clear commitment to promoting and developing Healthy Working Lives as an integral part of Sgoil a’ Bhac. This has been further evidenced by their written health, safety and wellbeing strategy that addresses all aspects of Healthy Working Lives.”

Each year, the school produces two key documents. The first of these is our Standards and Quality Report (SQR), which we have presented this year in the form of a short booklet for parents to access more easily. Alongside this, we publish our School Improvement Plan (SIP) for the next session.  We hope to make our improvement plan more accessible this session by providing a summary poster to accompany the full planning document. All the documents are attached below:

Parent Survey Results 2016

We had a good response to our parent survey for this year and we are now able to share the results following collation of all the responses received. The results of this survey, combined with the results of similar consultations with pupils and teaching staff, have been used to identify and support priorities for next year’s school Improvement Plan.
