Our Learning Community

Values Tree

It has been fantastic seeing the tree of values grow this year. Truly a kenspeckly display. Be sure to check it out if in at parent consultations this week – and the consultation area in the hall too.

Walkers Crisps recycle project.

Recycling at PPS

Recycle your crisp packets here.

Great news – several months ago PPS applied to join the Walkers Crisps Recycle scheme – and to nominate Pencaitland Primary School PTA as the charity to support from our collection point. Any crisp packets can be recycled, but there are a few ‘no’ items too.

All has been approved now – a real collaboration for parents and carers, pupils, staff team – and the wider community too! 

For more info check our facebook page or the website for Walkers Crisps/recycle.

Note: All links will take you to external pages.

The Learning Council have also been working across the primary classes on their eco-friendly project. You’ll hear more about that at the Spring Fayre!

 

 

 

School Evaluation

School Improvement Plan

Thanks to everyone who made time today to join staff team in school.

Focus and engagement.

An interesting session, and great opportunity for parents and children to give their views too.  If you missed out today, fear not, as our HT will set out similar consultation for parents and carers to access during the three parent consultation dates in the coming week.

If for any reason you can’t access those either, you can email admin@pencaitland.elcschool.org.uk to request a ‘home version’ of the areas being reviewed.

School Photos feedback

The Parent Council are inviting each family (PPS) to share their thoughts re school photos – to help us plan for next session. Please respond with your children’s views too.

The link below will take you to Surveymonkey. (Please check their site for more info re privacy / data).

Connect – for parents and carers

Connect, formerly the SPTC, has a huge amount of useful information for parents and carers with their children in Scottish schools. If you are interested in getting their newsletter regularly and/or becoming an individual member – follow the (external) link.

They also have a facebook page.

Two surveys are currently open also. One for all members of connect and the other for parents of 2-5 year olds currently in EY provision through 600 or 1140 hours.

Connect nursery hours survey icon
Calling parents of 2 to 5 year olds – please help us find out about early learning and childcare/nursery across Scotland – are you receiving 1140 or 600 free hours? 
We’re asking parents to tell us about their experiences of nursery/early learning and childcare now and for the coming year.  How many free hours has your child received (or will they receive for 2019/2020)? Is your local authority piloting 1140 hours (the entitlement for 3-5 year olds from 2020)? Please complete our survey here now!

Support from the Start May Digest

Lots of useful and interesting information again this month SftS May19

Baby Massage Haddington .

Support from the Start is the network in East Lothian, of parents and carers, practitioners and professionals working in partnership to create the best start in life for our children. SftS happily shares information and awareness around events, opportunities and our own work that helps to support this. Each cluster area has an active group and love meeting new folks interested in developing ideas in their local area.
