Education Scotland Report

I am very pleased to share with you the Education Scotland report from their visit to our school and ECC in June 2018.

The letter highlights the many ways in which all members of staff are working hard to provide quality learning and teaching opportunities for Catrine’s children.

The report also provides us with clear direction for our future priorities.

Thank you for your support during our recent Inspection, and I will be happy to discuss the report at any time, just contact the school.

Welcome back!

What a great start we’ve had to our new term!

Our new P1 pupils have had a wonderful day, and they’ve all settled in very well.  Thanks to their P7 Buddies for looking after them so well in the playground and dinnerhall.

Welcome to Miss Weir, our P6 teacher.  Mrs Schendel is teaching P4/5 at present, and all classes have had a great first day.  Our pupils looked so smart in their school uniform, and it was lovely to hear about their summer adventures.

I’d like to thank Helen Hall, Janet Fleming and Stuart McCreath, our new janitor, for their hard work and commitment during the summer holidays.  Our school has had lovely new flooring fitted throughout the main corridor, which has meant lots of extra work for them.  Thanks to them for ensuring that staff and pupils returned to classes all set out and organised.

We look forward to another exciting and busy year ahead at Catrine PS and ECC.
