BREAKING NEWS : We are delighted to announce that our very own Patrick is a finalist in the Community & Diversity Category of the Young Scot Awards 2020. Massive congratulations young man – you are an absolute star 🌟 #bethebestyoucanbe – super proud of you 👍
We hope this finds everyone well and safe. I hope you have been enjoying the sunshine. The staff team and I are missing all of our young people and their families. Here is a wee message – from our houses to yours.
A nice calming tool for children and parents. Practise this technique with your child when both of you are feeling ok, then it will be more effective when it’s really needed!! 🌈 #breathe #coregulation #selfregulation
We understand that some parents and carers are supporting pupils to use social media, Facetime and Zoom to make contact during these difficult times. It is great that you are able to keep in touch this way!
As previously communicated, we are looking at how school staff can maintain contact with pupils, through video calls or similar. We are looking at options for this, but it may take a bit of time to set up. Such contact between staff and pupils is permitted via the official Glow Scotland portal only, and not via Zoom, Facebook etc. This is to protect our pupils, staff and families in line with East Ayrshire policy and General Teaching Council for Scotland Code of Conduct.
In the meantime, we also have lots of resources, links and videos on our website and invite families to engage with us via Twitter.
Parents and carers must not attempt to communicate with school staff using any method other than official communication channels. As shared earlier today, we have an online contact form via the school app and on the homepage of our website, which you can use to securely contact the Senior Leadership Team.
Please remember to download our school app, visit our school website and to rely on official East Ayrshire Council communication channels for updates regarding COVID-19. This will minimise speculation and support our efforts to delay the spread of the virus. Thank you.
