As the end of term is fast approaching, the school would like to say a great big thank you to our parents and friends of Mount Carmel for organising this years fun day.

The children will take part in  day full of great activities including bouncy castles, obstacles courses and a visit to the ice cream van.

They will also be taking part in outdoor play session. The children are invited to bring in bikes and scooters for this activity (they also must bring a helmet for health and safety reasons)

And finally, the children are encouraged to wear their own clothes tomorrow. We ask that no child comes into school wearing football colours of any description. The children should wear comfortable clothes and shoes for all of the fun and active activities they will be taking part in.

As always, we thank you for your ongoing support.

Early Closure Summer 2024 Transport Update

Early Closure Summer 2024 Transport Update

The Summer School closure on Friday 28th June 2024 whereby all schools close at 1pm will no doubt have an impact on pupils who access school transport. We have many linked contracts that serve both primary pupils as well as secondary pupils across both Mainstream and ASN Schools.

To ensure sufficient transport provision on this date and to ease congestion, all contractors will arrange to collect primary children at 12.25pm. 


P 2 and P3 World Of Work Event

On Thursday 20th June, we had a very successful WoW day. The kids had a ball and enjoyed seeing the many different careers on offer in our big hall!

A huge thank you to Miss Grimley for organising this event  And a big thank you to all our parents/carers and all who came to demonstrate and inspire the next generation with their fantastic displays of their profession.

Breakfast Club

Letters have gone home today regarding Breakfast Club. This year we have received over 60 requests for places, however, we continue to have only 30 spaces. This will result in a number of families not receiving a space.

As our Breakfast Club staffing is not authority funded but funded using our Pupil Equity Fund this means that spaces are allocated linked to a range of criteria including:

  • SIMD (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation)
  • school attendance over a number of years
  • latecoming over a number of years

Receiving a place in previous years does not guarantee a space for the coming year. Daily fees of £1 ( currently supplemented to reduce costs to 80p) this covers the authority cost of food only.

If you have received a letter offering your child a space at Breakfast Club for Session 23/24 please return to the school office no later than Wednesday 26th June

We currently have a waiting list for spaces at breakfast club therefore if we don’t receive your letter by this date accepting the place allocated to your child we will assume that the place is no longer required and allocate the space to one of our waiting list children.

Thank you for your support with this.


The Martin Chambers Ecudor Trust Fundraiser

The children have had a wonderful day at our singalong and dance-along fundraiser for the Martin Chambers Ecudor Trust.

At present we have managed to raise an AMAZING £1129, however if you still have any sponsor money you would like to donate this can be paid via Parentpay 

Thankyou to everyone for sponsoring the children and helping to raise  funds for this wonderful charity.

World of Work Day – thank you!

I would just like to say thank you all so much again for giving up your own time yesterday to help at our career day. Without all of your help it wouldn’t have been such a success! The children had a fantastic day learning different information about your job roles as well as having the opportunity to try on and use the equipment that was brought and have the opportunity to see the emergency service vehicles too! Mount Carmel are super grateful for you all and we hope you enjoyed our day too!

Thank you,

Miss Grimley

Friday Fundraiser for Father Martin

All sponsor money should be brought into school tomorrow morning.

The children will enjoy a day of celebrating everything Father Martin loved from coming together as a school to singing and dancing.

The chidren are encouraged to wear clothes that represent the colours of Ecuador (yellow, blue and red), a place very loved by Father Martin. If your child down not own clothes with these colours, please do not worry. It is simply a non uniform day then.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and let’s raise some money for our dear friend ❤Ecuador Flag - 5 x 3 Ft Product Image

Clean Green Awards

We are so proud of the hard work of our wonderful pupils at Mount Carmel for all of their efforts towards making our school more eco friendly. Our Eco Committee have helped to drive forward changes within our school to gain our ‘Highly Commended Bronze Award’ through the Clean Green initiative as well as our green eco flag. This is only our first year in our eco journey so we are immensely proud of these achievements.

A special mention to Hannah and Sophia (P7), who introduced many eco strategies across the school and  monitored their impact. Also, Mrs McGahon, our Eco Champion who has led our Eco Committee and supported our children throughout the year.

Hannah and Sophia attended the Clean Green Awards to collect our award and flag. They had a fantastic day networking with other schools. They enjoyed listening to all the eco friendly changes other schools have made.
