HT Open Forum - March 2018

As a school we consider we have a very inclusive and open door policy with regard to communication on any school related issues. 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 contact the school office to agree an appointment time and I will be happy to meet with you to discuss further at this time.
The next drop in is planned for - 5.00 - 6.00 pm date to be confirmed.

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.
