Free Oxford Reading Tree E-books

Dear Parents,

Like it or not the future seems to be growing in the development of e-books. The reading scheme used in school is Oxford Reading Tree and the company have published over 150 free e-books on line for use at home. Try them out, the reading level goes up to 11 years old and has a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction. In addition to the reading books there is a selection of free maths resources and e-books too, just click on the maths tab to see what is on offer. You can log on at http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/FindBook If you find it useful let me have some feedback, it just might make homework a wee bit more pleasurable, or is it just my boys that try patience to the limit?

Parental Questionnaire October 2011

Parental Questionnaire Oct11

This year we based our questionnaire on the model used by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education, or, as they are now known as Education Scotland. Their new web site can be found at http://www.hmie.gov.uk/ The results were very heartening with most of the results over 90% (adding together strongly agree and agree). It does pinpoint a couple of areas we will have to work with Pinkie Parents, namely taking parents views into account more and keeping parents better informed. Thanks to all those 115 parents who took the time to let us know what you think.
