Opportunities to get involved

There are many ways that parents/carers can become involved in school.  We have a few opportunities open at the moment:

Mentor for Junior Road Safety Officers

Two of our P7 pupils are JRSOs and are seeking an adult who could meet with them about once a month to discuss what they are doing, help them to keep in touch with our link person in Lothian and Borders Police, provide encouragement and take an interest in their activities.

We are looking for parent representatives to sit on the Health Working Group and Rights Respecting Schools Working Group.  These groups are working on aspects of our development plan.  No prior knowledge is necessary and further details can be obtained from Mrs Wareham.

Active Schools volunteers

Our Active School co-ordinator is always on the lookout for parents/carers to help with a range of active after school activities.  A comprehensive training programme is on offer.

Involvement in self-evaluation exercises

As a school we are continually striving to improve the quality of the service we deliver.  If you would like to join in with some of our self-evaluation exercises please get in touch.

Thank you.

Curriculum night

Curriculum night will be held on Wednesday 14th September 2011 at 7pm.  The first part of the evening is a chance to meet your child’s teacher for this session and hear about what they will be learning in the coming weeks and months.  The second part is an opportunity for you to see some maths in action and try out activities for yourself with the maths roadshow in the hall.
