September 2019 – Questionnaire

School Value focus – Ambition

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 Ambition 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.

Drop-in Sessions

Thank you to parents and family members who attended our drop-in sessions yesterday. It was great to see everybody! It was nice to show off the great start we’re making to this term’s learning and to show how our Primary 1 pupils have settled in so quickly.
