We very much welcome parental support in school and any parent wishing to volunteer to help out should express their interest through the school office or directly to the Head Teacher. Some parents may wish to help out in classes, others may be able to help out with school trips or when we hold whole school events. Some parents may have a particular skill (eg. sewing, dancing, sport etc.) which they are able to share with children, either in class or as an After-School Club. Parents working directly with children on a regular basis in class or at an After-School Club will be required to be “disclosed” through the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) Scheme, in line with The Moray Council policy.
There are various after school clubs run by parents which include a bike and lego club. We also have a ‘Funky Choir’ which is run by a pupil from Speyside High School.
We ask you, as parents, to take an active interest in all that your child does and support us in maintaining the high standards set by the school. We also offer open afternoons for parents to see their child’s learning and achievements.
Please continue to support your child’s learning at home. Allow time to complete reading and other homework in an environment that is free from distractions. Discuss their learning with them, and do not hesitate to add any comments you have about their learning, when you sign their reading records or homework diaries. Some children will have home/school diaries in which learning activities and other important news can be shared.
