Dates for your Diary

Usually we would advise parents/carers of the diary dates for the whole session in August. However, under the current guidance, we will only be able to advise of diary dates a term at a time.

At present, we are unable to hold whole-school assemblies. Dates for Showcase and topic assemblies will be later in the year if and when these are allowed to occur.


Monday 22nd: Nursery to P3 pupils return to school; P4-P7 will continue home learning; the childcare hub for P4-P7 will continue. Details for the phased return have been sent by the Director on Thursday 18th February, and the school arrangements were emailed by Mrs Gamble on Friday 19th February. Copies of these can be located on the main page of the website. 


First Minister announced aim of 15th March for P4-P7 to return. We will advise of further updates as we receive these.
