South Of Scotland Transport Survey for Young People

The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.

This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

Celebrating Remote Learning

Mrs Legge wanted to send you something to share and celebrate the work that has been happening within our school communities over the last fortnight. This has no doubt been a challenging time, but I want to thank pupils, parents and staff alike for their commitment and efforts in engaging with remote learning and all the contributions that you have made.

We know that learning takes many forms, and that as well as engaging with online tasks, learning has been happening within and around the home in lots of ways.

We hope you enjoy the presentation attached, thank you once again for all your support
