Almost Time to Come Back

It’s almost time to welcome our children back to school!  Here are a few wee updates!

Now that we are due to be back in school fulltime and following guidnace of no large gatherings, Mrs Young will cover Non Class Contact for 2.5 hours each week in P1/ P2-3 / P5-6 and P6-7.   This will begin week beginning 17th August.

Mrs Connor, an experienced teacher joining our staff team on a Thursday and Friday will teach Primary 4 on a Thursday and Friday up until playtime.  The rest of the time, Mrs Connor will provide targeted support identified children in P4.  This will be from week beginning 17th August.

Information will be posted on the app regarding which day will be your child’s PE this week.  For the time being children won’t change for PE.  However, you may wish, if the are wearing uniform, to send them to school in joggers or leggings with trainers on these days.  PE will start week beginning 17th August.  There are some days the Scottish weather may prevent PE from happening!

Please remember we aim to be outside more than usual!  So your child should always have a jacket with them.

There are a lot of belongings left from when we closed in March.  These items have been gethered as per classes last session.  We will try and issue what we can to children. If items have no names this obviosuly won’t be able to happen easily.

If you take a look on the class pages you will see photographs of how the classes are arranged.  Classrooms have been arranged as per gudiance issued to us.

There are other small changes that you will notice around the school to help keep us all COVID safe!

There are hand sanitising stations in our classes and also additional hand sanitiser dispensers at different points thoughout the school.

There are lots of new posters around the school to remind you about handwashing

Toilet doors have numbers on them to show you how many people are allowed in at a time.  There are similar notices on office/common area doors.

There are markings on the floor to remind you about keeping to the left and remaining outside of a room until you know it’s safe to enter.

There will also be notices inside and outside reminding adults visiting the school to keep a 2m distance and reminding everyone of where drop off points are.

Please keep checking the blog and app, these will be our main methods of communication.  Annual reports will come home via pupil post on the day your child is in school this week!
