Scottish Education Governance Review

There is currently an ongoing national consultation within Scottish Education regarding school governance arrangements.
This review includes provision for changes to who runs schools, school regions, funding and budget management. The results of this consultation could influence the Scottish School system for generations to come.

The timing is far from ideal, but responses to the consultation are required by 6th January 2017.

However, implications for our children could be far reaching and it is very important that all parents have the chance to respond and make an impact

The Parent Council will be forming a response, please feel free to contact us with anything you would like to see included. We would urge all parents to consider getting their voice heard too by also responding to the consultation individually.

Here are the links to both the review and the responding papers, please consider responding and making sure your views and the educational needs of all our children are considered.

May I take this opportunity to wish all our families and staff a very festive holiday season and good health and happiness for 2017.

 

Parent Council.

Kingswells Parent Council and PTA AGM – Monday 8th September @ 1900

You are invited to attend Kingswells School Parent Council and PTA AGM on Monday 8th September at 7pm at Kingswells School.

There will be a short presentation from the Parent Council and PTA activities and accounts.

Mrs. MacIver, Acting Head Teacher, will share an overview of the developments within the school in the past academic year as well as the priorities the school will be working on going forward.

Councilor Delaney will also be available for a short question and answer session with parents to discuss issues affecting our local community including housing development, transport and super fast broadband.

If you are interested in learning more about what goes on at Kingswells School, please come along. This can be to contribute or just to listen. It may reassure you to know that we already have nominations for the major roles on both committees so you will not feel pressured into making any commitments.
