Early Learning and Childcare Career and Jobs Fair at Queen Margaret University – Saturday 7th March 10 – 2pm

 

We’re holding a careers and job event 10am-2pm, on Saturday 7 March 2020 at Queen Margaret University.

Our event focuses on the wide range of opportunities available in Early Learning and Childcare – including jobs available now.

It’s a growing sector – by 2020 the sector in Scotland will need up to 11,000 new recruits. Not all of these will work directly with children as practitioners, managers or childminders, but also in support services such as catering.

It’s a free event for anyone who has an interest in this area, or who would like to find out more.

A range of exhibitors will be there covering every aspect of the industry.

It’s never too early or too late to play a difference in shaping young children’s lives.

Homework Survey Results

The following is from Martin Brown, Law Primary School Parent Council Chair:

The results of the recent homework survey were presented by the Parent Council at its meeting on 20th January. The slides are HERE if you wish to view them.

The survey indicates a strong desire for the return of homework set by the teachers and that the majority of parents currently feel disconnected from what their child or children are learning in school.

As a result of the review the school will now work towards the introduction of weekly homework. This will be done in alongside new measures to increase the connection between learning in the school and home.
