The coming standardised assessments in schools: information for parents and carers

From August 2017, new, national standardised assessments will be introduced in all schools in Scotland. These assessments will provide an additional source of nationally consistent evidence for teachers to use when assessing children’s progress.

Parents and carers can see the details of this important new initiative by clicking here.

Joy Jarvie, a third-year PhD student at Heriot-Watt University, has approached us for help with her ecology-based field work on the pond in Inverleith Park.  She is asking local residents if they’d fill in a survey on how they see the benefits of this pond.

To take her survey, click this online survey link.

Her e-mail address, for any questions you may have, is jaj31@hw.ac.uk.

University Open Days and Application Dates

getting there

Here’s a table we’re compiling, of university open days and application details for entry in 2016.  It’s a quick-reference tool for all Broughton families readying for the big leap!

If you’re researching this for yourself, and you come across additions or corrections for our table, please e-mail them, if you would, for the benefit of your classmates and their families, to uni.opendays@broughtonhighpc.org.

Going forward, by the way, we’re also working on a way of connecting aspiring applicants from Broughton High with alumni at these various universities.  Watch this space.
