At Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu we strongly encourage all parents to become involved in the education of their children. We are always ready to listen to suggestions for new ways of stimulating parental interest. We contact and involve parents in many ways. For example:
Xpressions App – Free download from App Store – Groupcall Xpressions Almost all our communication with parents/carers is sent via Xpresssions
Letters – Further information which requires a response may be sent out in letter form.
Text messaging – You may also receive text reminders about events/school closures etc.
Our School website contains a great deal of information about the school. It is a good idea to check this regularly.
Seesaw – the Seesaw app is used by teachers to share the learning of each child, events in classes and also, on occasions, school events/information. This app is also used for communication between parents and their child’s teacher.
Meetings – Parents and carers are welcome in the school to discuss any aspect of their child’s development and progress. To ensure that you are able to speak to the appropriate member of staff, it is advisable to make an appointment. There are various opportunities throughout the year when parents can discuss their child’s progress with school staff.
Parents and carers are welcome at other events throughout the school year e.g. workshops, information evenings, class performances, award ceremonies, religious and other assemblies. The school newsletter (Dè tha Dol) and website will keep you informed.
