Some of our Senior students handing over a cheque for £5300 to Lucy Mitchell from St. Andrews Hospice Schools Liaison Team. The money was raised on this occasion from the Ben Nevis Challenge in June when 63 staff and students from St. John Ogilvie scaled The Ben in support of their Business Partner, St. Andrews. Lucy thanked the School for its outstanding support of St. Andrews and gave the senior students an insight into the work of the organisation and urged then to continue with their wonderful support both through events such as the forthcoming 6K at Strathclyde Park on the 21st September and as Official Ambassadors for the Hospice.

The National Parent Forum of Scotland
 
 

The National Parent Forum of Scotland has been working with Skills Development Scotland as part of the programme of work underway in Developing the Young Workforce.

We are pleased to have produced some tailored information for parents, as part of our successful "in a nutshell" series, which covers the new Careers Education Standard launched at SLF 2015. This new nutshell will supply parents with basic information about the initial role of this programme in schools and signpost them to where they can get some more information if they need it.

This nutshell has been produced in hard copy with one for each child in primary, secondary and ASN schools and deliveries will start w/c 11-1-16. We would be very grateful if you could ask your schools to make sure it reaches parents through "pupil post" but also to publicise the nutshell link to our website through all the channels they use to communicate with them. We would also hope that it could be used at parent events, subject choice evenings etc.

The link to the nutshell on the NPFS website is

HMIe Inspection

We are delighted to have received such a positive report from Her majesty’s Inspectorate for Education. The inspection involves the school being scrutinised in relation to 5 key areas of its work and it is given a rating for each of these areas. The 6 possible ratings are Excellent, Very Good, Good, Satisfactory, Weak or Unsatisfactory and the inspection team then identifies the Key Strengths of the school and finally identifies Areas for Development. As you now know, the inspectors have placed us in the Very Good category for all 5 areas of the inspection. Effectively, what that means is that it is recognised that there are Major Strengths in all areas of our work which cover.HMIe

Rights Made Real

Following a very demanding scrutiny of all the work students and staff have been doing this year under the Making Rights Real agenda, we are proud to announce St John Ogilvie High School has been awarded SLC Rights Made Real accreditation
 
Congratulations to all the students (almost 40) who presented evidence to the panel this week to showcase the impact of Rights Based Learning across the school. The panel were hugely impressed with the sheer range of activities our young people have been involved in as they learned about their rights, They commented on the many excellent examples of students participation, for example, in the Pupils’ Audit and Space Unlimted projects. The Junior Leadership Team who led the afternoon showcase, were delighted to receive the award on their watch.

South Lanarkshire Council has recently submitted the Follow Through Report for the 2013 Inspection. Following the highly successful report in April 2013, the Authority letter below confirms that the school has made very positive progress in the two areas in which we were asked “to continue” to develop. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Staff for their work in ensuring that the school continues to  go from strength to strength throughout what has been a very challenging time for Scottish teachers. My thanks also for the continued unswerving support and trust of the parent body.
