At Mauchline Primary we realise that the current situation can be challenging for everyone, both adults and children and we are eager to support you as best we can as we face these challenges together.
As part of our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) our coach (Hazel) from Barnardo’s Scotland, who supports the implementation of the PATHS® programme in school will be taking questions relating to the Social and Emotional Health and Wellbeing of parents, children and family members.
If you or your child have any questions regarding challenges you are currently experiencing, perhaps dealing with difficult feelings or behaviours in your home or dealing with new challenges presented by staying at home, you can send Hazel your question anonymously via the forms below and she will respond.
As always, if you have a particular concern regarding your child that you want to discuss please contact us directly and we will be happy to talk over the phone or via email.
Below is a link to some French activities of use during school closure:
This week’s focus: Fake News

The school recently purchased Clicker 7 – thanks very much to our very generous Parent Council.
We only just received the software before the school closed, therefore didn’t have much of an opportunity to get to know it very well.
“Clicker is the complete writing solution for the primary classroom, providing every pupil with just the right level of support and challenge.” (Quote from the Clicker website).
It is installed on all of our desktop computers and will be available for use on return to school.
However we have managed to gain a month’s free access for staff and pupils at home. This allows access to Clicker 8 (we have Clicker 7 in school) to let the children have a ‘play about’ with the software to see all of the fabulous writing tools that it has.
Please follow the link below for installation:
If you are interested in downloading and using Clicker, please email Mrs Cross for the unique installation code. We are not allowed to share this on Glow as it is a public platform.
