Port Erroll in the Community
Port Erroll School has a Parent Council and a Parents and Teachers association (PTA) which operates as a sub group of the Parent Council.
Peterhead Community School Network
Port Erroll School is a member of the Peterhead CSN. All Primary Schools whose children go to Peterhead Academy are members. Social Workers, Psychologists, Community Education Workersand Education Officers all attend meetings of the CSN. There is close liaison amongst all these Departments for the benefit of all children in the area.
Parental Visits and Reports
Parents wishing to discuss matters concerning their child’s education and welfare should contact the Head Teacher in the first instance to arrange a suitable time for interview. Parents’ Evenings will be held at regular intervals throughout the year.
All parents are members of the Parent Forum and elect members of the Parent Council. Parental involvement is crucial. Parents are welcome at any time to come and visit or help with school outings, fund-raising events or extra curricular activities. It must be realised that any adult helpers are in a position of trust when helping in school and confidentiality is of paramount importance. All parent volunteers are required to complete a Disclosure Scotland form.
The Pupil Council consists of pupil representatives from each stage from P2 to P7. They meet regularly with a designated member of staff to discuss improvement that could be made to enhance any aspect of school life. If considered practicable the suggestions will be forwarded to the H.T. for approval and implementation.
Multicultural and Anti-racism Policy
The school is committed to a policy of multicultural and anti-discriminatory education, the aim of which will be the enrichment of the education curriculum for all: the preparation of young people for the pluralist society: the eradication of racism, and the fostering of respect for minority cultures as integral aspects of society.
There is a Mother and Toddler Group in the village as well as the Port Erroll Nursery. The School is used weekly by Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and the Youth Club. The School receives regular visits from the Rev Peter Mander who is the school chaplain. Port Erroll also invites a variety of people from the community into school, as well as encouraging the children to go out into the area for educational visits.
