Parents Survey Report

Thumbnails of pages from the report

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the survey of parents’ views we carried out in October and November. We received over 200 responses and that’s fantastic rate for a survey of this type.

We have prepared a report looking at what parents have to say about the parent council and the school. The responses have been overwhelmingly positive and supportive of the school and the parent council. We will follow-up on potential areas for improvement in two ways:

  • For areas related to the Parent Council, we will look at how we can change the way we work to address any issues raised.
  • For areas related to the school, we will identify the themes that have emerged and provide supporting to the senior leadership team.

The report is available in our documents area.

First Meeting

Our first Parent Council meeting of 2016/2017 is next week — September 5th at 7:00pm.

We have a great group of committed parents who each give a few hours every term to help in a variety of ways. Some attend meetings, some help with fundraising, some help run events, and some help with campaigns or communications.

What could you do? What time could you give? Every little bit helps, and all talents are welcome!

We would particularly welcome new members from those who have just started in S1 this year but everyone is welcome and there is no pressure to speak. Please come along next Tuesday and learn more about the parent council and the life of the school.

New Information Pages

At this week’s information evening for P7 families joining the school we provided those attending with a pamphlet with information from parents about the school. Our aim was to pass on helpful information from other parents at the start of a family’s journey through high school.

The pamphlet for 2017 is available as a download. and we’ve added this information to the website as pages that can be used any time and may be of interest to existing parents too.
