As reported previously, on August 29th 2013 the Parent Council wrote an open letter to our Rector on behalf of the parents of Banchory Academy, formally setting out the parents’ wishes regarding senior phase implementation in our school.
We have received a reply from the Rector dated September 12th 2013.

** Update **
Following the reply of September 12th we sent a follow-up email on September 17th to the various parties from the Scottish Government and Education Scotland who were copied on our original open letter.
** Update 11/11/2003 **
The Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland's Languages, Dr Alasdair Allan, replied to the follow-up email of Sept 17th. His reply reiterated previous correspondence.
The minutes from the June 2013 meeting are now available.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday October 9th at 7pm in the school library (please note one-off change of day to Wednesday to avoid clash with the Aberdeenshire CfE Senior Phase working group).
If you have anything that you would like to raise please contact any Parent Council member.
Parent Council meetings are open - any parent/carer is welcome to attend.

At the end of last term the National Parent Forum of Scotland issued a very useful Q&A document: NPFS - Parent/Carer Questions Answered on CfE and Qualifications. (We linked to it in the final article of last term, but it’s worth highlighting again).
