Nut Allergy

As we have pupils with severe nut allergies, can all parents/carers ensure that pupils DO NOT bring in food for snacks/packed lunches that contain nuts or traces of nuts. The health and well-being of our pupils is a main priority, and we much appreciate your support in keeping our children safe.

Please contact the school office for any further information.

Thank you.

January – questionnaire

School Value focus – Honesty

Every month in our Home Circles at Catrine Primary School, and in the Welcome Groups at Catrine ECC, we will be focussing on one of our Catrine Values to ensure that our pupils have a solid understanding of them.

Our Values are – Ambition, Determination, Fairness, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork.

We would appreciate your views on what Honesty means to you and your family.

Responses will be collated and displayed around our school and ECC to show a shared understanding of our Catrine Values from all stakeholders – pupils, parents and staff.

Thank you.

School Lunches – reminder

Our school lunches are cooked and delivered from Auchinleck Academy. To ensure correct delivery you must order your child’s lunch in advance. Today there was 21.66% of lunches not ordered. This had an impact on the service. If you have any issues/problems ordering your child’s lunch, please contact the school office. Mrs McDicken will be happy to help.

Thank you.

Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted and very proud to inform you that I have just received confirmation from Education Scotland that both Catrine Primary School and Catrine ECC are both fully signed off from the inspection process following our EAC Authority review in October. This is a testament to the commitment, dedication and professionalism of all members of staff at both establishments. Official notification from Education Scotland will follow in the new year.

What wonderful news to be able to share with you right before the Christmas Holidays!

Christmas Service and Infant Nativity 

Thanks to all family and friends who were able to join us to celebrate Christmas yesterday at Catrine Parish Church.

Our comperes – P7 pupils Emily, Evie, Eryn, Sophie and Calan- did a wonderful job, as did our Media Team, Sophie and Leon in P7.

Our French Committee Group taught us lots of interesting facts about how Christmas is celebrated in France – thanks to Georgia, Ellis, Kaci, Erin and Summer for their excellent presentation.

Our P1, P2 and P3 pupils performed their nativity ‘Prickly Hay’ to a delighted audience – they looked wonderful in their costumes and the singing was brilliant – Photos to follow! 

Catrine PS Parent Council announced the winners of their ‘Guess the Elf’s Birthday’ raffle – it was Leon in P7, and two lucky pupils were presented with £20 voucher for Smyths Toy Store after their names were drawn out in the whole school raffle – congratulations to Duncan in P4/5 and Caleb D in P2. 

Thank you again for joining us yesterday – we hope our singing, poems and nativity left you feeling very Christmassy!!

Palace Theatre – visit

We all had a wonderful time at the pantomime at the Palace Theatre today – OH YES WE DID!

We sang, booed and shouted all the way through the performance. Neve in P6 and Joey in P3 represented the school beautifully when they were on stage singing a song with Buttons.

Palace Theatre staff complimented Catrine PS on our great behaviour, lovely manners and commented that we were the best school for tidying up after our snacks, leaving no rubbish at all. Well done everyone!
