Monitoring and Tracking
In our continued attempt to improve attainment we have increased the number of tracking reports.
The first of our monthly tracking reports has been issued to all of our pupils.  
If you do not have a copy, please contact the school.
It could be that you have concerns or perhaps you would like more information.  Again contact the school and speak with either the guidance teacher or relevant depute.
The next monthly tracking report will be issued at the end of October.

Early Warning System  (S4, S5 and S6 students)
Last session our parents asked for a an early warning of students whose progress is giving cause for concern.  We implemented this and it did provided our parents with extra information over and above our tracking report.
This session our teachers have asked that this exercise is repeated as they wish to alert our parents to the concerns that they have.  Already parents have been 'phoned, some have received letters and others have been in school for interviews.
These letters will be in the post at the end of this week.  Only those students whose progress is giving cause for concern will receive a letter.  Within the letter will be a separate report from each of the class teachers who have raised concerns.  It should be called the rainbow report as all of the subjects report on a different colour of paper.As with all of our monitoring processes, parents and carers are invited to contact the school for further information.

Second Information Evening for the parents of S5 and S6 students.(Topic:        Opportunities for All.  
This will be led by Schools Development Scotland and will look at the following:
  •         Labour market information - what are the jobs of the future in this area.

Weekly bulletin
Brannock Pupils Go Bowling
A huge well done to all of our pupils who attended Newarthill Bowling Club on Tuesday of this week to learn about the sport of Bowls. The enthusiasm shown by all who attended was superb and very much appreciated by the staff on the day who provided good advice and information concerning the sport. It is hoped that next year more regular visits will be made by many of our pupils to enjoy some simple competitions while enjoying the fun of the game.

Drama Club Visit to Cumbernauld Theatre
Yesterday’s visit proved to be a big success – well done to all participants. Led by Mrs Kerr, our Drama students proved again to be great ambassadors for our school.
