This is the Success Stories section where you can tell other parent groups about your activities. If you have a project or Parent Council/PTA activity you’d like to share, then just fill in the template and decide which theme your story comes under – Parenting, Communicating, Volunteering, Learning at Home, Decision Making or Collaborating with the Community – and we’ll do the rest.

We’ve chosen these six themes because they are the Six Types of Involvement we use in the Partnership Schools Scotland framework. We’ll also be posting Success Stories from schools involved in the Partnership Schools Scotland project.
