Dear Parents/Carers

I hope you have been left unscathed by the torrential wind and rain. I hope whoever has my garden furniture is enjoying it as much as we did in the summer!

Reviewing our Curriculum – We are committed to ensuring that we achieve the highest possible standards and success for all our learners. The ambitious curriculum required has the needs of the learners at the centre. It is important that the school and the community work together so we can turn this commitment into reality. Please help us to review our curriculum by responding to some or all of the questions on the attached sheet. You can also find these questions pinned up at the entrance to the school with a pen and post it notes to add your comments. Our P6/7 pupils are casting the net wider and canvassing other people in our community. We will keep this running until the October break. We look forward to receiving feedback.

Kind regards
