Consultation on Pattern of School Term Dates

Aberdeenshire Council, Education, Learning and Leisure have recently launched a consultation for all staff and parents regarding the pattern of school term dates, holidays and in-service closures for the next five sessions from 2015/16 to 2019/20.  The consultation runs until Friday 4th April 2014.

The consultation takes the form of a short online survey which can be accessed by the following link:

The Education, Learning and Leisure committee will consider the results of this survey at their meeting in May 2014 at which stage they will hopefully approve the final set of term dates.

Adverse Weather Arrangements

As winter sets in provision is made to prepare for an unexpected closure of the school, whether before opening or during the school day.

You may recall that I wrote to all parents early in October about the adverse weather arrangements, should we experience poor wintry weather conditions.

Raising Attainment

Raising Attainment – Target Setting

Mintlaw Academy is committed to raising the standard of attainment for its pupils.. A new initiative has been introduced to support pupils achieve their best potential.

In all subjects from S4-S6 all pupils will be issued with a target from their teachers which will be closely monitored throughout the session.

Pupils who are not working at their expected level will be offered additional support and strategies to get them “back on track” early and before the exams.

The role of parents is vital in this and it would be helpful if these targets and current level of performance is discussed at home.
