Message from Innerwick Parent Council


Dear Parents and Carers
The Parent council would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mrs Lindsay Cameron and Mrs Janette Gordon to the school.
As you will all be aware Lindsay took over in the office when Tina left and we are delighted to have her enthusiastic support in helping the Parent Council stay in touch with families and the community.
Mrs Gordon achieved the post of Head Teacher just before the holidays and we are delighted to have her in the school ready to take us forward in this new academic year. Mrs Gordon is just what the school has needed after many years of uncertainty and staffing issues. We wish her every success and support in the months ahead.
The Parent Council would like to remind parents that the school has an open door policy. If you have any issues or worries about your child or matters arising in the school you are welcome to discuss them with Mrs Gordon or the appropriate member of staff. This is easy to organise by phone, email or by popping into the office. Lindsay will assist you to make an appointment if necessary to discuss the issue.
We would discourage parents from using social networking sites to vent anger or negative issues regarding the school. This is not only upsetting for the members of staff involved but if they are seen by the wider community will create a very negative image of the school.
Thank you.
Rhona Jamieson.
