Staff and pupils are taking Makaton signing to a new level across the school. Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
I was delighted to be picked a star signer from Alan Frew.
Vision and Values
Alloa Academy have been working with the school community to update our Vision and Values. Pupils and staff have worked together to establish four top designs that will displayed across the school.
Mr McGhee has coordinated the work that has seen every pupil, member of staff, many partners and parents to have their say. I think the design look great and I look forward to seeing the wining design across the school.
