Open Forum - September Reminder . . . .
As a school we consider we have a very inclusive and open door policy with regard to communication on any school related issues. We are in a period of significant change at present and I know there is a huge degree of trust placed on us to do our best in terms of maximising both attainment and achievement for all pupils at Biggar High.
In addition to the above general availability, it is my intention to set aside specific time once per month after school as I know parents/ carers can sometimes find it difficult to manage to school during daytime hours. This open forum will run from five o’clock until six o’clock. If there is an issue or area of school life where you require further information or want to share your views please let me know and I will be happy to meet with you to discuss further at this time.
The next drop in is planned for Tuesday 6th September from 5pm to 6pm.
