Gathered Together Motion, 29/10/14 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 29 October 2014 by Bob Doris (SNP) on the recently launched project, Gathered Together.

The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament welcomes the recently launched project, Gathered Together, which encourages parents from ethnic minorities to be more actively involved in their children’s school; notes that the project is a joint venture between BEMIS Scotland and the Scottish Parent Teacher Council and is funded by the Big Lottery’s Third Sector Early Intervention Fund; believes that parental participation in their children’s schooling has significant benefits not only for pupils but also for communities; further understands that parents from ethnic minorities can face particular barriers in getting involved, and welcomes what it sees as the success that the project has already achieved in harnessing and enhancing the diverse skills of parent councils, community groups, ethnic minority parents and educators.
