S5/S6 Study Days

Don’t forget that Wed 16th and Thurs 17th Feb will be study days for S5/6 pupils. The sessions will last from 09:00 – 14:00. Full details are available on the school website.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the pupils and we are extremely grateful to all the teachers, office staff and others who will be giving up precious holiday time.

Thank you!!

Working Together

The PSP have been discussing with Mrs Craig how parents/carers and the school can work together to help pupils achieve their full potential, particularly in exams. Mrs Craig has explained to us that teachers actively track pupils’ progress and intervene where there is cause for concern. There are regular revision lessons in most subjects at lunchtimes, after school and during the holidays. You can find the details of the revision and study sessions in the Extra Curricular section of the school website, and keep a look out for details of the upcoming Easter Holiday revision classes.

As parents and carers, we can encourage our children to attend these sessions wherever appropriate and, if we have concerns, then we can contact the school. It is important that we ensure that our children have a quiet place to study at home and have access to the internet, where possible, to see the material on the school website. We have also been asked to check our children’s homework diaries, to ensure that their homework is done regularly and is of a good standard.

Our aim is always to work closely with the school to help our children be the best that they can be. Don’t forget to check the school website regularly to see what is going on at the school. If you have any concerns or comments, feel free to contact us or contact the school directly.

Knox Needs You !!

Though we have already informed you that the PSP will be holding their usual meeting, followed by the AGM, this Wednesday 9th February, we wanted to take a moment to encourage you to come along. It will be an excellent opportunity for you to see what goes on at our meetings and to find out what really goes on at Knox. All the parents/carers in the PSP have found it an extremely useful way of keeping in touch with the main issues that affect our children’s education and we value the opportunity to make our voices heard.

All parents/carers are welcome to come and we would be delighted to hear any fresh ideas or points of view that you may have. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday at 6:15 (7:30 for the AGM).
