The Cost of a School Day

Dear parent/ carer, In liaison with our Parent Council we have been looking at raising awareness of the whole area of ‘equity’ at Biggar High School. To this end we have created an information booklet, The Cost of a School Day as a starting point which is designed both to reflect our values and to encourage any family who feel that financial pressures are impacting negatively on the ability to support their child’s education in its widest sense to engage with the school. The booklet provides a context to our present situation, information about what we are already doing to deliver equity and a strong appeal to pupils and parents to communicate with the school over areas of possible concern in relation to supporting educational provision Any comments and observations would be most welcome.
