Our Parent Council will issue a letter to parents with further information.


Aberdeen City Council is seeking your views on a new Devolved School Management (DSM) scheme which, once approved, will be effective from August 2020.  This scheme sets out the arrangements for how funding for education is managed and makes clear the roles and responsibilities of headteachers and the local authority. A range of people have worked together to write the Draft Guidance and we are now seeking the views of parents/carers, children and young people on the scheme.

Copies of the draft summary document and the full draft scheme are attached (below).

Please use this link to record your views:
