Junior Road Safety Assembly

Our Junior Road Safety Officers Keven and Fabio led our road safety assembly to launch Road Safety Week.

We all enjoyed watching a video about safety when crossing roads, an interactive magic show and a quiz to help us to learn about Road Safety. They are also running a poster competition with the whole school with lots of prizes to be won for the most eye catching designs. Thanks too to Mr MacKay who supports the running of this pupil group.

Education Bill- Government consultation

The Scottish Government is drafting an education bill to improve education in Scotland by giving greater autonomy and decision making powers to both schools and headteachers.

Amongst other measures the bill will seek to

  • Establish a “Headteacher’s Charter”.
  • Improve parent and carer involvement in school life
  • Establish regional Improvement Collaboratives.

The Scottish Government are consulting parents on implementing this plan.

If you wish to know more or to respond to the consultation then it is available on this link.
