Partnership with Parents and Carers

We encourage and value any opportunities to work with parents as partners in the education of their child and the development of the whole school community. Parent helpers are involved in activities at the school as well as going on class outings.We hold Entrant Programme meetings for the parents of our new Primary 1 pupils, giving some insight into the approaches to learning and resources used. We consult with parents through the Parent Council, PTA, questionnaires and meetings. Mount Cameron is fortunate to have a very active Parent Council and PTA.

Various fundraising and social events are held throughout the year with great success. We also work very closely with our parents and guardians on a whole range of issues. We place high value on working in partnership with both the Parent Council and the Parent Forum. We have a Parents’ Room at the entrance to our school which has useful resources in addition to tea/coffee facilities. Classes for parents and guardians are sometimes held in the Parents’ Room of the school.

We use Parentmail (notification emails) for parents and guardians as a way of communicating more closely with our parents and guardians. For more information on how nto register please go to the Parentmail website.

Mount Cameron Primary School - a gateway to other South Lanarkshire Council Services Icon

Other South Lanarkshire Council Services

There are many Council/Education Resources services which we can access for our pupils and families. The school is also kept up-to-date with a whole range of services throughout Scotland.

We can, in partnership with our parents and guardians, refer children to Psychological Services, Behaviour Support Services, School Health Services, Specialist Support Services (for teaching and learning) and a wide variety of other agencies.

Within South Lanarkshire Council, there are now ‘Children’s Integrated Services’ teams. There are a wide variety of workers in these teams, including Family Support Workers, P6-S2 Support Teachers, Attendance Officers and many others.

The Children’s Integrated Services Team can talk with families (in confidence) about ways to support their children, whether that be because of health issues, learning/social/behavioural difficulties, family circumstances or indeed any areas of concern.

The school has literature on all of these services and staff will be happy to discuss this with you at your convenience, if you feel it would be useful.
