We are currently working towards becoming a Young Scot accreditation.

Young Scot is the national information and citizenship organisation supported by the Scottish Government for young people aged 11-26 in Scotland.

Young Scot also provide opportunities for young people across Scotland in order to help develop their educational and professional development.

We have formed a Young Scot ambassador group in the school - they will be working hard over the next few weeks to share the benefits of Young Scot with us all.

The organisation issues the Young Scot National Entitlement Card to young people aged 11-26. This provides cardholders with discounts for goods and services across Scotland and certain European countries. As well as being part of the National Entitlement Card Programme that runs in Scotland it is also a proof of age card. Find out more

Young Scot also have a rewards scheme where users can earn reward points and then in turn collect rewards. Find out more

Young people in S1 are eligible to sign up for a Young Scot card. The card offers many benefits including shop and travel discounts and other rewards, as well as opportunities to take part in national initiatives. With parent/carer permission, the school can arrange for S1s to receive their Young Scot card. Our pupil Young Scot ambassadors are working on support material to highlight the benefits of Young Scot.

The Stirling Council Senior Phase and Youth Participation team look after this initiative for us and have asked us to pass on this letter.
