ASN Parent Survey letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Review of Highland Additional Support Needs Allocations Model – Engagement Sessions

As you will be aware, there is currently a review taking place of the Additional Support Needs Allocations Model that is used in schools across the Highland Council area.

As part of this process, the Project Team are keen to engage and consult with our staff, pupils and parents to gather their thoughts and views on what is important to them.

With this in mind, we would like to invite you to attend an engagement event on Monday 28th October at 6pm in Charleston Academy.  The Project Team will be there to facilitate the meeting and are keen to hear your views. 

If you are unable to come along to this meeting you can share your views via the following link: Secondary parent survey

We look forward to meeting you on 28th October.

Yours faithfully,

Janice MacRae, Muirtown Primary;

HIGHLAND COUNCIL CHILDREN’S PANEL

Around 2,500 amazing people volunteer to be part of the Children’s Panel in Scotland.

We’re here to make sure all of Highland’s infants, children and young people feel safe, loved, valued and respected. It’s an important and responsible role that is hugely rewarding.

This year, Highland Panel needs lots of people like you to come forward and apply.

2019’s Panel Member recruitment campaign runs until, and including, 17 September so you need to take action soon.

WHAT WE DO

Panel Members take part in children’s hearings. They listen to and make important legal decisions with and for children and young people in Scotland.

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN

Skills including team work, leadership and a nationally recognised qualification. Plus, you’ll be supporting children and young people in your local community.

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

In a word – YOU.  There’s no one type of person or background that makes the ideal volunteer Panel Member. We want people who are good listeners, are compassionate and caring.

This year, Highland needs volunteers for the Children’s Panel in all areas of the Highland Council.

If you are interested in joining us, please go online and apply before the 18th of September to www.childrenspanelscotland.org      We look forward to hearing from you.
