New Breakfast Club  (added 09.09.18)
Please remember that our new FREE Breakfast Club will start on MONDAY 10th SEPTEMBER. It will run every day in the school lunch hall, 8.15-8.45 am and will provide breakfast only (no activities, except table top games ~ all donations welcome!!). Our Cook in Charge will provide breakfasts while school staff and parent volunteers will be on hand to ensure a safe, secure environment for pupils. Entry will be from 8.15am at the lunch hall playground door at the upper playground, which can be reached via the lower or middle playgrounds. Following breakfast, pupils will then go out into their own playgrounds from 8,45am, when staff are available to supervise. If you have already returned  the reply slip issued/contacted the school office, your child already has a place allocated and you do not need to do anything more. I am sure our Breakfast Club will be a real success!

Session 2018-19 - Helpful reminders (added 26.08.18)  

Thank you for your support in helping your children settle so well to school. Staff have enjoyed getting to know their new pupils and planning the learning & teaching ahead.

Just a few reminders:-
  • Pupils should line up at 9 am in the playground, in their class lines.
  • Pupils should bring a P.E kit to remain in school for regular use.
  • Indoor shoes are required to be worn by all pupils indoors (these can double up as gym shoes).
  • A spill proof bottle of water should be brought to school daily. This can be refilled as necessary during the day.
  • School lunches are free to pupils P1-3 and £1.65 for pupils P4-7. Milk is 20p if required. A small snack should be brought to school for break time and we advise this should be separate from a packed lunch box for younger children as this can cause some confusion in the early days.
  • To minimise disruption to classes, please avoid latecoming and ends ensure your child brings everything required for school in the mornings.
  • The school Breakfast Club will start on Monday 10th September, 8.15-8.45pm. All pupils who have notified the school have places.
  • Each pupil has a named person in school who has pastoral responsibility for them. I oversee Rooms 1 – 4, Mrs. McGovern oversees rooms 5 – 8 and Mr. Campbell oversees Rooms 9 – 14.
  • As a ‘Park & Stride’ school we ask for safety reasons that you park as far away from the school as possible and do not park on the double yellow lines at any time. Thank you to our Community Police who continue to support us in this. Already several car registrations have been reported to the police. If you are concerned about illegal/dangerous parking please contact either myself or the Police, with the registration number. Selfish parking puts your children at risk.
  • Please continue to refer to our school website calendar for diary dates. We will be introducing our new School App soon; look out for details. The first newsletter will be published on the website at the beginning of September.
Kind regards.
