PARENTS have given their kids’ school teachers top marks.
A new report shows that 96 per cent of parents are pleased with their child’s school.
Almost every parent in Renfrewshire and the rest of Scotland was involved in the study which found they were “highly satisfied” with their child’s schooling.
The annual Growing-up in Scotland report looks at life as a child in Scotland, and this year focussed on three areas – early experiences at primary school, weight and physical activity and the involvement of grandparents.
The 2012 findings also include that “nearly all” parents felt their children had adjusted well to starting school, while 99 per cent of parents have undertaken activities to prepare their child for school.
It was also revealed that 94 per cent had attended a parents evening.
Meanwhile, of those kids classed as obese at four – around nine per cent – half of the kids had shed their excess weight by the time they turned six.
Aileen Campbell, Minister for Children and Young People, said: “The findings help our understanding of what makes the best start in life, how to achieve that for our children and how to measure the progress already made.
“We are committed to supporting children and families and recognises that getting it right in the early years is essential.
“These findings will be hugely helpful to us as well as our partners working across the early years in Scotland.”
