Consultation on Free Bus Travel for under 19’s

 

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/

Anti-Bullying Week 2020

Skipper info

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?

Welcome Back Everyone

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.
