P7 Sumdog Maths Champions of Scotland (added 05.10.18)
A massive congratulations to all our P7 pupils, their families and their class teacher Mrs Docherty, who worked together as a team during Maths Week Scotland. Their efforts saw them crowned the overall winners in the Sumdog competition and we were all delighted to attend Scottish Parliament on Wednesday to be presented with the winners trophy by John Swinney (Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills) - Well done everyone!!!
Social Media and Your School Community (added 28.09.18)
The National Parent Forum of Scotland are delighted to launch these new resources for parent councils and their schools today. A huge thanks to all who were involved in their creation – the Argyll and Bute Headteachers group, the Scottish Parental Involvement Officers Network, the Scottish Learning Group and all of the individual parents and parent councils who provided feedback.
There are three elements:
A guide for parents and carers that is perfect to go home in schoolbags
A poster for displaying in school
and a resource for Parent Councils to collaborate with their parents and school to make the social media work for everyone
You can download all three from the following link: Parent Forum Scotland
or contact us on email@example.com to order hard copies
Sanitory Provision in Schools (added 28.09.18)
The Scottish Government has committed to providing access to free sanitary products for those attending schools, colleges and universities in Scotland from the start of the new 2018/19 academic term. The purpose of this commitment is for students to be able to access sanitary products in a manner that respects their dignity and meets their particular needs.
Pupils have been made aware on how they can access products within school by their class teacher and Mrs Mooty.
Alternatively, should parents wish to discuss how they can access a supply for their child this can be done by contacting the school office.
