Children In Need

Generous and caring pupils, staff and parents went dotty for Children In Need.  Lots of fun was had by all as pupils wore clothes and learned about Pudsey Bear and the importance of Children In Need.  The day began with Base 7 pupils presenting Children In Need information to others at assembly and progressed with a variety of art and design and writing across the curriculum activities.  Two caring parents also dressed up in Pudsey pyjamas and raised a whopping £100 to add to our final total.  This combined with the nursery and school donations resulted in a fabulous £665.46.  The day was rounded off by a mention on Children In Need.  Well done to all everyone who donated to such a super cause.  Thank you to the pupil council for organising the whole school event and also to Rhianna and Siobhan for being photographers for the day!

Bag 2 School

bags-to-school

Our PTA have been working hard to raise money to support school activities such as science workshops, pantomimes etc…  The Bag 2 School collection has been arranged for Wednesday 12th October at 9am.  If you have any Bag 2 School donations then please take them to the school main entrance, just outside the school office, on the morning of Wednesday 12th October.  Many thanks to the PTA for organising this and also to all who donate! 🙂

Parent Council Survey

It is now 10 years since the introduction of the Parental Involvement Act 2006 and the authority is revising its Parental Engagement Strategy.  As part of the review NLC want to accurately comment on schools’ current and intended relationship with parents.

The recently published Education Scotland Act 2016 and the HGIOS4 both contain dedicated sections which emphasise the need for schools and parents to work effectively to enhance pupil progress and school improvement.

To that end two surveys have been created for schools and parents to reflect and comment on current practice and suggest how parental engagement might be improved.

Can I encourage yourself, as a member of your school’s Parent Council and through you the wider Parent Forum, to take some time to complete the survey as your thoughts are immensely valuable.
