MAY 2019

Parent Council Meeting held Wednesday 15th May 19

The main points we discussed:

Recent Inspection

Viewlands has recently been part of a nation wide inspection.  Forty schools in Scotland were chosen, Viewlands was the only one from Perth & Kinross.  The inspection concentrated on the relationship parents and children have with the school.  The inspectors were very complimentary about the school and were happy to see that the school's open door policy was working well. They also commented the school had a lovely 'vibe' to it.  They loved the 'nursery natters' initiative and said this was something they would encourage other schools to adopt.  

The report will be available in June but will remain anonymous.

Amazon Vouchers

All classes received a £100 amazon voucher to spend on supplies.  We have had letters, cards and words of thanks from pupils and teachers which we wanted to pass on to the wider parent forum.  The teachers seem to have worked wonders with the vouchers and it has been really interesting to hear what each class spent the money on.

Nursery Places

From August 2020 nursery places will be changing across Scotland.  Viewlands currently have 60 children on their nursery register.  From August 2020 this number will be reduced to 24 as each child will be offered a place from 9am - 3pm.  

Road & Traffic update

Councillor McCole has finally made some headway with PKC on the issues surrounding the school and traffic problems.  There is to be a meeting held between all three schools on our campus - Viewlands, Perth Academy & Fairfield, to discuss suggested initiatives to try and solve some of the traffic issues currently faced.  We will keep you posted.

Next Meeting - 24th June 2019 - all welcome!
