Marjorie Temperley, Aberdeenshire Council's Education Support Officer (Parental Involvement), has asked us to publicise a survey on absence reporting:

Dear Parent Council Chairs,

Aberdeenshire Council is currently reviewing the way parents/carers report their child(ren)'s absence from school, with a view to making the process easier and less time consuming for both parents/carers and staff based in school.

Please can we therefore, ask you to take part in our short online survey on reporting school absenteeism. Please click on the following link to take you directly to the online survey:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/aberdeenshire_school_absenteeism

Points to note:

    • Should you have children at more than one school in Aberdeenshire, please can we ask you to complete the survey for all the schools your children attend.
    • The survey can be accessed at anytime from now until 2300 on Wednesday 19 February 2014

If you are able, please can you promote the survey to your Parent Forum to ensure we collate as many views as possible.

Thank you for your support in publicising this to your parent forum wherever possible.

 

Kind regards

Marjorie
