Midlothian Council has issued draft guidelines, developed by police, health and social work, to support parents/carers and teachers in talking to young people about problematic risk taking behaviour. They would like parental feedback before moving to issue a final paper later this year. If you would like a copy of the draft guidelines for your consideration, these are available from the school office. Any feedback can be emailed to the school email address F.A.O Ms G Preston (DHT) for collation. Responses are required by Friday 20th September 2019.
