Supported study aims to provide senior pupils with additional support with subject content, homework and preparation for course assessments, prelims and SQA exams.
The following is a timetable of current supported Study opportunities during lunchtimes and after school.
A parent of one of our pupils has very generously put a great deal of work into planning extra-curricular opportunities for young people in Brechin on Friday afternoons. She would now like to gauge interest for a similar initiative in Montrose.
In Brechin, volunteers willing to run a number of activities have come forward. These range from dancing, music, arts and crafts to creative writing, book groups and economics. Sports activities and walking groups are also being offered.
Should you feel that you would be able to offer an activity on Friday afternoons, we would be able to provide a venue in the school and would cover any costs related to the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and insurance. Volunteers would however be required to complete risk assessments. Please get in touch with the school and we will forward you the details of the parent who will oversee this initiative in its initial stages.
Before the summer break I invited parents to take part in an evaluation of the school – thanks to all who took the time to do so. Following this I met with parents to discuss the responses and measures the school will take to address concerns raised. It was pleasing to see that many parents recognise the very good work going on in the school as well as areas for improvement.
Please see the school’s response below:
