Aberdeenshire GIRFEC Website

I would like to draw your attention to the new Aberdeenshire GIRFEC website.  This is now the central way of containing information on GIRFEC for practitioners, young people and parents / carers.

It now means that information can be contained in one place and is intended to help everyone navigate through a complex landscape.

The Scottish Government provide schools with a statistical “toolkit” which enables teaching colleagues to access school performance data. Please see below for some interesting statistics.
