Unfortunately the “link to survey” button in the recent post is not working on some sites. This is the survey URL: Workforce Mobility Project – Young Scot Survey (surveymonkey.co.uk)
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.

Despite everything, it’s been a busy Christmas here at PPS:
Primary 1 & Primary 1/2 Nativity
Brass play Jingle Bells (with a couple of impostors)
P6 Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
What can I say ….
As you may be aware, the Scottish Government plan to launch a new national travel concession scheme to provide free bus travel for young people under the age of 19. They anticipate that legislation to underpin the scheme would be required to be laid in Parliament in early 2021 and the scheme would come into effect later in 2021.
For the next six weeks (until Monday 7th December), Transport Scotland are running a consultation in regards to this scheme to gather information on the most appropriate ways to provide this free travel to best suit young people. They are hoping the consultation will reach as many members of the public as possible, especially to those who will be impacted by the proposals, including children and young people, their parents and carers and people who work with children in a paid or voluntary capacity.
The consultation can be found on https://www.transport.gov.scot/consultation/consultation-on-free-bus-travel-for-people-resident-in-scotland-aged-under-19/

Tuesday 27th to Friday 30th October was Anti-Bullying Week in Pencaitland Primary School. Every class did something to promote anti-bullying. The video below was created to share some of our work with you.
Crochet Enthusiasts required.
(Download the pattern from links above).
If you can crochet, maybe you could help? (Or maybe you know someone who could).
A new rolling programme will start in PPS after October break. It’s called BUILDING RESILIENCE and it has a wonderful main character called “Skipper”.
Head teacher, Sarah, has asked for mini crocheted Skippers x9 and has a pattern you can download and follow as well as wool and stuffing
– so just willing helpers needed now.
Can you help?
It’s wonderful to have children and staff returning to PPS – and of course, we want to do this as safely and as happily as possible, so here’s our video to make sure everyone – children and adults doing pick up / drop off – know where to go.
Special welcome to our new P1s and other children joining our village school – and staff new to school. Good luck to our lovely Leavers too starting S1 in your different schools – and a HUGE THANK YOU to you and Lynn Fraser for making our doorways so inviting and great fun.
Attached are medical forms which can be printed and filled out for your child if you require one for your child starting in August. They can be filled in and posted to the school or handed in when your child starts.Scan_PUNTO_PE_XVF20681_0722_001 Scan_PUNTO_PE_XVF20681_0723_001 Scan_PUNTO_PE_XVF20681_0724_001
