Rothes School Association
Parents and carers are important and can make a real difference to children’s learning—when parents are involved children and young people do better and achieve more. You, parents and carers of Rothes children, have a blend of unique and varied skills, interests and experiences. These skills can make a real difference to our children’s learning experience.
Every parent, member of staff and carer of a child at Rothes Primary School is automatically a member of the Rothes School Association (RSA).
Why do we need the RSA?
- To make sure that all parents have a say in their children’s learning and to allow parents to express their views and wishes.
- To bring together the learning community: children, parents, staff and the wider community.
- To improve and develop the school’s facilities through activities such as: coffee mornings, fairs and other fundraising events.
- To enhance the life of the school community by organising discos, parties and other social occasions.
