Parental Engagement

We all have a role to play to support our learners.

We look forward to working with you and your child(ren) this year. Effective school and home partnership is crucial and I understand the key role good communication plays in this. We endeavour to give you plenty of information in good time. This is our planned learning framework for the year ahead. Unfortunately, often due to circumstances beyond our control, dates or events do need to change. This framework is intentionally flexible. Your family will be provided with regular updates through Groupcall emails, texts, newsletters and updates. The school website is our main communication hub. – the search facility is useful to find the information you need.

Our Cramond Parent & Staff Council (CPSC) play an invaluable role in supporting the school and developing our whole school community. They support us with fundraising, school improvement and community events. We need your help in many ways & would love you to get involved.

The CPSC meet 5 times a year with a key learning agenda and core business. The next day we have a CPSC coffee morning from 9am in our Sports Hall with a recap of the Learning Focus and core business from the night before. We also have a ‘pop in to class session’ at the end of Friday coffee to let you see a snapshot of learning at Cramond (preschool pupils can come with parents). You are welcome at any time to attend our CPSC meetings, discover what’s going on in school, put forward suggestions and learn about our Primary School.

CPSC Fundraising – our Events Lead & Sub-committee regularly need help running school fundraising events. Volunteers can help at events or behind scenes be it sourcing prizes, making business links/contacts, developing community events & with event promotion.  We require helpers on the day with set up, manning a stall, help at a disco, tidy up etc. More detail will be sent out nearer each event date.

CPSC Gardening – volunteer gardening/odd job sessions are organised throughout the year – usually held on a Sunday for a couple of hours (coffee & cakes provided!). The sessions are of course weather dependant.

Parents with work contacts are also a great help – we have had great support in the past from ‘Volunteer at Work’ groups, mini project support, donations and match funding.

We also love parents sharing information about their world of work with pupils.

Some parents are CLASS REPS – helping bridge communication between school, home and CPSC.

It is your school and your support in many ways, shapes and forms makes a very welcome difference to our School Community. Thank you.
