Parent/Carer Homework Survey

please help

This session we intend to review our existing Homework Programme, taking into consideration the views of pupils, staff and parents/carers. We would be extremely grateful if you could take five minutes to share your views by completing one of the surveys below. If you have more than one child at the school, please choose only one survey to complete.

Primary 1-3 Homework Survey

Primary 4-7 Homework Survey

Many thanks for your help!

Research Project starting next week

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are absolutely delighted with the response to the Health and Wellbeing Research project, including the number of children who are taking part in the capillary blood sampling.

The university is planning on starting the gathering of information next week and we have outlined a proposed schedule of year groups for your information. For those children who will be fasting beforehand, the university will be in school from 8.30am therefore if you wanted to come in with your child for the capillary blood sampling, we would ask that you come in anytime from 8.30am on the day outlined for your child’s year group. Please do not worry if you are unable to come in with your child, this is an option. Please also remember that your child can withdraw at any point with this too.

Thursday 11th February P5 – 7 pupils 8.30am onwards

Friday 12th February P3 pupils from 8.30am onwards

Monday 15th February P4 pupils from 8.30am onwards

Tuesday 16th February P1 and 2 pupils from 8.30am onwards

Wednesday 17th February ANY PUPILS WHO WERE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE ON THE PREVIOUS DAYS from 8.30am onwards.

Again, the above times are for children who will be fasting before taking part in the capillary blood sampling. The whole process is very quick and the children will then be offered toast and juice immediately afterwards in the dining hall.

Both the university and ourselves have the list of names who are taking part. If your child is not taking part, they will obviously not be included in any part of this project other than participating in PE as normal.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the above.

Mrs Henry
