Dear all

On Tuesday this week I was informed by the Head Teacher Graeme Sives that he is to take up a new post in South Lanarkshire. All staff, pupils and parents/carers should now have been informed by meetings, letters or Wisepay e-mail.

The Parent Council thank Graeme for all his work at Balerno High School and wish him well for the future. As indicated by Graeme in his letter the Parent Council will work closely with the school on interim arrangements and the recruitment process of a new head teacher. Both Graeme and I will keep you informed of developments over the coming weeks.

I have received initial feedback from Parent Council members on the opportunities the recruitment of a new Head Teacher can bring as well as ensuring the continued good work of staff and pupils at the school. The Parent Council members will ensure we achieve that, to the best of our abilities, as representatives of parents/carers at the school. Graeme and I hope to meet further next week on the matter.

If you have any comments or questions you can contact the Parent Council via e-mail at balernohspc@gmail.com.

Kind regards,
Tony Foster,
Chair of Balerno Parent Council
