Involvement starts at the school gate
"Parents talk to me at the gate about wee concerns with their kids and I follow them up before they grow bigger.
"We do home visits to every Primary 1 child.
"We have activity afternoons, one class at a time, for parents to come in with their little ones and work with the pupils.
"We run a creche.
"We run groups for parents in computing, crafts, health and well-being, parents and toddlers, cookery, ceilidhs ..."
"Basically," says Sheila Laing, the headteacher, "we will do anything we can think of to encourage parents to come into the school."
"And it works," two parents say at the same time.
