Craigour Park has been nominated for two awards in this year’s Children and Families Achievement Awards. In the category of Engaging and Collaborative Learning, our Fresh Start programme where we invited parents in to work alongside their children has been recognised as excellent practice. Alongside this, in the Increasing Parental Engagement category, we have been nominated for our ground-breaking work in being the first school in Scotland (anywhere! Ed.) to use electronic Learning Journals to better inform parents about their children’s learning and encouraging them to comment on this. To date, the staff has posted over 10,000 observations and you have made over 2,500 comments in reply. We have been delighted by your enthusiasm for them.
Although we have been nominated – we won’t know if we are the Council’s outright winners until Monday 28th September. So fingers crossed! No matter the outcome though, we want to thank our hard-working staff and you for continuing to make Craigour Park an engaging place to learn.
