A consultation on the local authority’s admissions policy has been launched. The proposal is to make a limited variation to the School Admission Policy for Perth and Kinross Council schools from school session 2020/2021. The limited changes relate to ensuring pupils living in Perth and Kinross are awarded appropriate priority for school places and pupils transferring to secondary school from feeder primaries are awarded appropriate priority.
This policy will affect the children, young people and families of our school, so I ask those with an interest to share your views. The consultation can be accessed here:
This consultation closes on 24 January 2020.
Headteacher of St John’s Academy, Seán Hagney, said: “We are delighted to renew our Gold Status as a Rights Respecting School, and this award from Unicef UK, underlines our focus on promoting the rights of children and young people. As a school community, understanding our inalienable rights helps us to better understand our role in our world as active, global citizens, and how we can make a positive difference to one another’s lives. I want to thank the pupils from across our nursery, primary and secondary, their parents and our staff who have contributed to achieving this prestigious award.”
