holly holly2Dear Parent Council,

It’s been a very busy term for everyone with lots of carol and nativity concerts, Christmas parties, fairs and as well as AGM’s into the mix.

There are a few housekeeping items looking ahead to January.

Finance

There are still a considerable number of accounts still outstanding, please send them in as soon as possible after the new year.

If you need help with preparing or support with the submission, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Training

There are number of new dates in the New Year for Finance training, HR Selection and Recruitment, First Aid and welcome new members sessions planned.

If you are interested in any of these or would like specific training for your PC in your school, please get in touch.

City Wide Parent Council Meeting

The next meeting is at Café Coast March on 10th March 7.15pm till 9.00pm

Matt Reid, Curriculum Development Officer will share about the Rights Respecting Schools. In addition, I am hoping to have some PC’s come along and share what they have been doing to support their school.

Sharing Good Practice

There are lots of positive partnership working happening in schools. I would be delighted to highlight some of the great work you are doing. If anyone is interested in sharing by email or in person at the next termly parent council meeting, please get in touch.

Scottish Education Awards

The Scottish Education Awards were first launched in November 2001 by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Daily Record, with the specific aims of celebrating the successes and recognising the achievements taking place within Scottish education. It’s that time of year again where you can get the opportunity to nominate people or a group. Please click on the link and consider who you might nominate. http://www.scottisheducationawards.org.uk

National improvement Framework

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, MSP, launched a draft National Improvement Framework for Scottish education on 1 September 2015.  The Framework will bring together the key information that is needed to support improvement for all children in a consistent way. It builds on the strong foundations of Curriculum for Excellence and aims to ensure that, across Scotland, parents, teachers, schools and local authorities have access to the right type of information that tells them about the progress of children. You can read more about this on http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0048/00484452.pdf

Finally

I wish you and your families a safe and happy Christmas holiday and best wishes for the New year
