Edinburgh City Council Consultative Committee with Parents

22 May 2021: A meeting of the Council’s Consultative Committee with Parents (CCwP) meeting took place on Thursday 13 May. 

There was good news at the meeting in the form of £5.9 million for the Council to support Covid-19 recovery funding, which will be used to retain extra school staff employed this year. 

The meeting also heard about the ongoing parental concerns on the SQA’s Alternative Certification Model that had been raised at Locality meetings. 

The meeting discussed implementation of a new funding model for Active Schools, and the impact this will have on the activities that are offered, and how they are financed.  JGHS Parent Council, the School and our Active Schools co-ordinator have been collaborating to ensure that the current range of activities at the school can be retained in 2021/22.

A number of sports activities will be running for S1-S3 pupils in the run up to summer 2021. Booking must be made by Monday 24 May.
