Parent Council/PTA

We are a very active Parent Council and meet regularly throughout the school year. We are always on the lookout for new people to join us as well as new ideas. If you would like to find out more about Parent Councils please read the information leaflets - links at the side of this page under Documents - or contact one of the members.

Please come along to any of our meetings - dates are in the school newsletters and on the website calendar.   

The NPFS hosted their second National Conference on Saturday 1 October. The evaluation of this very successful conference can be found in the download section.

New Qualifications - http://www.sqa.org.uk/cfeforparents

Have you seen the new parent and carer section of our website?

It has a range of resources, including our new parent and carer leaflet, to help parents and carers to understand the changes to national qualifications. Our Mythbustervideos answer some of the most common questions.

We have a jargon buster to help explain the terms we are using while developing the qualifications. We also have a chart which tells you what qualifications young people will study depending on the school year they are in now.

We are publishing draft documents on our website for feedback as we are developing the new qualifications.

We have now published draft Course Assessment Specifications for National 5. These documents give more detail about how each National 5 Course will be assessed and define the mandatory assessment requirements.

The documents are quite technical and are aimed at teachers and education specialists but we also welcome feedback from parents. You can give us your comments via Have Your Say – www.sqa.org.uk/haveyoursay.

We have also recently published draft Unit Specifications for Higher. You can find out more about these documents on our website. Feedback on the latest documents can be given until 31 January 2012.

Keep visiting www.sqa.org.uk/cfeforparents  for all you need to know about the new qualifications. Sign up for MyAlertsto receive e-mail updates.
