Our Aberdeenshire National Parent Forum of Scotland representatives, Cara Eriksson and Fiona Sawyer, who arranged the event in Aboyne on the Curriculum for Excellence and the Senior Phase, have prepared a report on the Minister for Learning's visit to Aboyne on June 17th 2013, covering:
- who attended on behalf of the Government, Aberdeenshire Council and schools in Aberdeenshire;
- the issues which were put by parents to the Minister and Aberdeenshire Council prior to and discussed during the meeting;
- what was agreed to be taken forward as an action and by whom; and
- news from after the meeting.
The report makes reference to Aberdeenshire's Guidelines for the implementation of Curriculum for Excellence March 2013 and to an extract of Aberdeenshire's CfE Guidelines 7th June 2012.
Whether or not you were at the meeting, please read the report to keep up to date with the situation.
