Parents are asked to complete survey below ;
Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect. As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting. We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete. By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe. Closing date for responses is 18 March.

Community Help and Advice Initiative (CHAI) is now in Castleview Primary School.
This service operates within 14 schools in Edinburgh so far, and helps families access free, confidential and impartial advice on housing, finances and welfare rights – offering the convenience of working from your school. Home visits can be arranged when appropriate.
Every year, around £81 million worth of benefits are unclaimed in Edinburgh. CHAI aims to maximise income, address any money problems and ultimately reduce the educational attainment gap between higher and lower income households.
Kirsteen Wishart, Advice Worker, is available to make appointments for families. Appointments can be arranged either through the school office or by contacting Kirsteen directly on 0131 442 1009.
Primary 3 enjoyed making models of the River Nile this afternoon. We worked well as teams to create a river that would hold water!
