Review of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006

Review of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006

Ten years ago the Scottish Parliament passed a law to ensure that parents can be fully involved in their children’s schooling.  This was to help parents be involved with their child’s education and learning, feel welcomed to take part in the life of the school, and to be encouraged to express their views, on their school and working together with the school.


This review asks for your opinion on the impact, successes and shortfalls of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006.  This includes looking at how well schools involve parents in what they do, and finding ideas to develop ways to better involve parents in the life and work of their schools. It is also hoped that it will inspire everyone to look at the most effective way of helping parents support children in Scottish schools.


Today we are launching our Call for Evidence.  A ‘Call for Evidence’ is a way to ask the public what they think,  gather information on what issues exist, and suggest ways of dealing with them.   This call for evidence asks for your views as a parent.  It asks for your opinion on the impact, successes and failings of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006.  This includes looking at how well schools involve parents in what they do, and finding ideas to develop ways to better involve parents in the life and work of their schools.


All of the information, including a link to the online survey, and downloadable paper copies can be found here.  The survey will close on October 31st.


If you are a member of your school's parent council, you can find   designated parent council information and survey here .


You can contact the NPFS on 0131 313 8842 or by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
If you would like to return your paper copy to us please send them to Review Team, NPFS,  Rosebery House, 9 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh, EH12 5EZ

Proposed Changes to Pupil Support

Parents and carers,

It is our intention to introduce a house system for Session 2016-17 to optimise and more effectively deliver pupil support for our young people and families. In consultation with our students, staff and the Parent Council it is proposed that the structure is in place by the change of timetable on Monday 6th June 2016.

Please be assured that pupil support staff will remain the same, however, PTCs and teams will be responsible for a young person within a house group rather than a year-group.

We will keep you informed of further updates and changes as they occur, so please make sure you regularly check the website as you prepare for these important changes to your son’s/ daughter’s support provision.

Until any changes take effect, the pupil support contacts for your child will remain the same should you need to contact them in any pastoral/pupil support capacity.

S1 and S6 – Mr M Reilly (PTC) Mrs M McKenny  (PST) Mrs E Shade (PSW)

S2 – Mrs N Da Silva (PTC - Acting) Mrs T. Orr (PSW)

S3 – Mr D McLeish (PTC – Acting) Mrs K. Clare (PSW)

S4 and S5 – Mr J Conroy (PTC) Miss L Lawlor (PST) Ms L Baxter (PST) Mrs C Timmins (PSW)

We invite any questions or suggestions you may have regarding the upcoming guidance structure via the following link: http://bit.ly/stkPShousesystemchanges . Please complete and return by Monday 30th May.
