We’re busy getting organised for our pupils starting back at Catrine Primary School after a brilliant summer, so there’s lots of information coming your way …
ECC decant – with our ECC taking over our infant end of the school, ALL Catrine PS pupils will enter and leave by our MAIN pupil gates.
Start and finish times – we’re continuing with our staggered start and finish times at the moment with
Primary 1, Primary 3 and Primary 5/6 starting at 9.00am and finishing at 3.00pm.
Primary 2, Primary 4 and Primary 6/7 starting at 9.10am and finishing at 3.10pm.
Please note that parents/carers should wait outside of the school gates for their child, following social distancing guidelines.
Staff will always be in the playground at the beginning and end of each day to ensure our pupils’ wellbeing and to show them where to line up.
Parking – after our successful School Streets trial last term, the parking restrictions are still in place around Catrine PS during term time dates. The restricted times are between 8.30-9.30am and 2.30 and 3.20pm. Thanks to everyone for supporting us with this scheme as it’s making such a difference in keeping our pupils safe at the beginning and end of the school day.
Lunches – we are delighted that our Primary 1 to Primary 4 pupils will be eating their lunches in our dinnerhall, with our P5/6 and P6/7 pupils continuing to eat their lunches in their classes for the time being. Please remember to book your child’s lunches in advance.
What to bring – for the time being PS pupils don’t need to bring a school bag or a PE kit to school. They can bring their packed lunch bag and a water bottle. We will continue to have PE outdoors for the next wee while, and will update you when we start having PE indoors.
INFORMATION FOR NEW PRIMARY 1 PUPILS 🙂
On Thursday 19th and Friday 20th August, our new Primary 1 pupils will be in school from 9.30am to 2.30pm.
On Thursday, one adult should bring them into the main playground at 9.30am where we will ensure that you get the chance to take some special photos to celebrate their First Day at School.
At 2.30pm our staff will walk our Primary 1 pupils down to the main gate to be collected by one parent/carer.
Our Primary 1 pupils will be in school from 9.00am to 3.00pm from Monday 23rd August. We can’t wait to welcome them to Catrine PS!
I hope I’ve covered all of the bases but if you have any further questions please email me at email@example.com or phone the school on Tuesday or Wednesday between 10.30am and 12.00pm.
Looking forward to a brilliant school year at Catrine PS and ECC.
