F.A.O Parents/Carers of our 'Burnside Butterflies' due to start P1 in August 2021:-
We have planned some time for your child to come along for a brief visit on Thursday 17th June. You should receive a letter detailing your child's time to visit, later this week. One adult can visit with each child and visits will take place in small groups outside in our P1 playground. We hope your child will enjoy the opportunity to meet some of their classmates and their teacher, as well as collect their special transition bag. This will also be an opportunity to provide you with some information about starting school. We look forward to seeing you on 17th June!
