Glasgow City Council Welcome to Shawlands Academy

Upcoming Events



S2 Parent Consultation Evening, Thursday 7th February 7.00pm – 9.00pm


Dear Parent/Carer


It is with great pleasure that I invite you to our S2 Parent Consultation meeting on Thursday 7th February at Shawlands Academy. The school is most aware of how important S2 is in making a successful transition to the next stage in your child’s education. The Academy strongly believes that the relationship between the school and parents is crucial and with that in mind I do hope that you have an informative evening.


Most appointments are 5 minutes long and will take place in classrooms at the front of the school. Rooms are organised by subjects and you will receive a map indicating which subjects are allocated to which room. In addition there will be a number of student helpers to guide you.

Your appointments with teachers will allow them to expand upon the information you will receive in the interim report which will be given to pupils to take home on Friday 1st February. It will also provide you with the opportunity to ask questions or raise any concerns.

In addition, if you have concerns about how your child has settled into S2 generally, you may wish to make an appointment with your child’s Pastoral Care teacher or myself.

The Acting Headteacher, Mrs Simpson and our senior management team will be in attendance throughout the evening and will be glad to meet with you if you wish.


If you have any queries or concerns that you wish to raise about the parents’ evening or your child’s education in general then please do not hesitate to contact me directly on the 0141 582 0210


I look forward to meeting you on Thursday 7th February.


Best wishes


Mark Symon,

Depute Head Teacher
