Seasons for Growth

Seasons for Growth groups will be starting soon. This is a small group opportunity for P3, P5 and P6 pupils who may benefit from learning to live with change and loss.  Change and loss affect us all at some stage. When changes occur in families through death, separation, divorce etc, young people may benefit from learning how to manage these changes effectively.
Please see the attached newsletter for more information.

National Survey on the Expansion of Free Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland

As you’ll be aware the Scottish Government is planning to nearly double the hours of free early learning and childcare by 2020. Because the views of parents and carers are crucial for the success of this expansion, the Government has commissioned independent researchers to undertake a survey of parents. It is now asking for your help in sharing the survey link ( with as many parents of 0-5 year old children in your community as possible.

All parents taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win one of 10 x GBP100 cash prizes.

The survey is carried out for the Scottish Government by Craigforth, an independent research company.

If you have any questions about this survey please send a message to:
