Becoming Involved in the School
The school values the important part that parents play in their children’s education and sees partnership with parents as an effective way of enhancing children’s achievements and promoting better school ethos and communication. We communicate regularly through school newsletters and our school website and we encourage communication through your child’s Reading Record or Homework Diary.
Guidance on the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 provides guidance on the act for education authorities, Parent Councils and others.
Parentzone provide information and resource for parents and Parent Councils.
