Heating

There has been an issue with the heating after we had opened up today. The engineer was called and was on site before 9am. The issue has been identified and the necessary part is on its way. We should be up and running again shortly. We appreciate not an ideal start to the day given the weather and thank pupils and staff for their cooperation.

Protection against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

Envelopes from NHS Scotland were sent out last Monday the 8 January to girls in S1 and also to girls in S2, S3,S4, S5 and S6 girls who did not take up the offer of vaccination previously.

Having the HPV vaccine now will help prevent your  daughter against the most common causes of cervical cancer.    If you wish this vaccine to be done in the school at the end of the month please return completed forms in the envelope provided by Monday 22 January.

We value your feedback – amendment

Please see below amendments (highlighted in bold & underlined) to the post published earlier today.

As a school, we value your feedback as parents and carers.  At parents’ information evenings, parents and carers are asked to complete short questionnaires designed to gather data on key areas.  This feedback has been collated below:

  • 88% of parents across the stages sampled feel the school helps their child to be more confident
  • 94% say their child enjoys learning at school
  • 96.5% say their child’s learning is progressing well
  • 86% say their child is encouraged and stretched to work to the best of their ability
  • 77% feel well-informed about their child’s progress
  • 86.5% are happy with the school overall

We are committed to doing our best for the young people of Nairn Academy, and your feedback indicates key areas of focus are asking for the views of parents (63% positive feedback)- through questionnaires, surgeries and meetings, newsletters etc.- and taking parents’ and carers’ views into account (60% positive feedback).

If you are interested in helping to develop new ways of collaborating with parents and sharing feedback, please contact Mrs Macdonald at the school. Over the coming months, we will look more carefully at how else we might share and gather feedback. In the meantime, we will continue to circulate questionnaires at open evenings and events, and to share news in our newsletters and via Facebook, our blog and newly designed website.
