Parent focus group – Tuesday 19th November

By | Parent Letter, School news | No Comments

I am keen to arrange a series of informal focus group meetings, the aim of which will be to look at issues which are of concern or importance to parents and carers.  This will allow us to see how well the school is doing in meeting your and our priorities.  The first meeting will be on Tuesday 19th November from 4.30pm-6.00pm.  Other meetings throughout the year will be spread over mornings, afternoons and after school.

Should you wish to come along, please phone the school office on 01674907500 or email the school at to let us know.

I look forward to meeting as many parents and carers as possible.


Yours sincerely


Mr M Smart

This is the first of these new termly events to give parents the opportunity to meet informally and discuss with other parents and staff about what we can do together to benefit our young people. Each meeting will have a different theme – agreed by parents. The theme of the first meeting is Communication. You will agree the next themes at this meeting too. Your child will receive  a letter tomorrow at Check- In with a tear off slip if you are able to attend. If you prefer call the school office on 907500 to book your place. 

The School Leadership Team will collate  information/ideas and share it with all parents. Refreshments will be available and staff will be on hand to support. We very much look forward to seeing you at this event.

Coping with Senior Phase Evening
We held a very successful evening with around 40 of our parents/carers of pupils in S4-S6 attending last Thursday.  The focus of the evening was to communicate strategies for best supporting young people as they progress through S4-S6.  If you were unable to attend then please have a look at the Power Point attached.  If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the school.
