ASN Review – Survey
May 27th, 2022 at 3:04 pm

Aberdeenshire Council is undertaking a strategic review of Additional Support Needs. We
would like to hear parent and carer views on how well Aberdeenshire schools meet children
and young people’s additional support needs, and what could be improved. We would like
to hear from parents and carers who have children with additional support needs, as well as
those who do not.
I would be grateful if you could complete a brief survey, which should take no more than 10
minutes of your time. A link to our survey is included below.

The survey will close at midday on Monday 13th June

Welcome to The Gordon Schools





For previous School Announcements please visit this page.



At The Gordon Schools we have recently renewed our Vision.

This guides our everyday actions and expectations and is a statement of what we are trying to be and do as a School.

An easy way to remember our Vision, is using the initial of our School – T G S





Is about treating one another positively, kindly and with respect. We are all a part of the School community, the Local Huntly community and beyond. Our actions here affect other local, national and international communities. We must consider what consequences our actions will have on others and on our environment, both locally and globally.



We need everyone to value and look after their health. This includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

TGS should be a happy place, with support for everyone to feel good about their health. We want you to develop confidence and resilience for life in and beyond School.



Success means being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. If you succeed with this then you will learn as well and achieve as much as you can. Have a growth mind-set – explore new things and aim for future successes! At TGS we want you to be proud of your achievements and successes and we will celebrate those with you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information – we will be happy to help.

Mr P Gaiter
The Gordon Schools, Huntly
