Police Scotland Public Survey - North East Division
We have been asked to publicise the undernoted on behalf of Police Scotland (North East Division).
In April 2020, North East Division will publish their Local Policing Plans for each local authority area, Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray. These plans will be in effect from April 2020 through to March 2023 and will include details of their Policing priorities for each area and how they intend to deliver them in conjunction with partners.
In order to fully inform these plans, they would welcome your opinion through completion of a very brief survey, the link to which is included below. Your opinion matters greatly to them and the short time it takes to complete the survey will contribute greatly to ensuring that Policing in your local area reflects the needs of our communities.
The survey will remain open until 31 December 2019.
Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA)
An Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) is an allowance of £30 per week, which can be paid to eligible students who stay on in education after the age of 16 years. Your EMA is paid every 2 weeks during school term time and it is not paid during the holidays.

School Dress Code/Uniform
It is good to see the vast majority of our pupils looking so smart in dress code and uniform on their return to school. Here is a reminder of the school dress code/uniform requirements for each year group. Please remember that S2 and S3 pupils may opt to wear school uniform, as indeed a number have chosen to do.
To allow full analysis of SQA Exam results, Fraserburgh Academy send all exam results to Wilson Webware who then process this data to produce a series of in-depth reports which Fraserburgh Academy staff can then access.
