If you don’t have current copies of the documents, we ask you still report to school to enrol, you can bring these at a later date.
Your child will remain provisionally enrolled until you have provided all required information and may be unable to attendinduction days until fully enrolled.

‘Social Bite’

As part of Scottish School Meals Week, the kitchen will be selling ‘Social Bite’ biscuits at break and lunch time tomorrow (Friday 4th November) .  The biscuits will cost 35p, 10p of which will be donated to Social Bite.  The biscuits must be paid for in cash at the time of purchase.  They cannot be purchased using money from your child’s school meal account.

Social Bite is a ‘Social Business’ – 100% of their profits are given to good causes and 1 in 4 of their team are formerly homeless people.  They also feed the local homeless community through their ‘Suspended Coffee and Food’ initiative.


Thank you


Parent Pay to go Live 19th October 2016

As advised in our information leaflet ParentPay, the new online payment system is being introduce to Busby Primary School.

Please ensure sufficient funds are available in your childs lunch account to last until Thursday 13th October.  If you currently use our online payment system Payments4Schools this will only be in operation until the end of day on Friday 7th October.  Pupils may still credit their lunch account via the reval machine located in the school.

You will be issued with an activation letter soon advising how to register for a ParentPay account.  All parents/carers are requested to register as the school office will become cashless, you will however still have the facility to credit your child’s lunch account only via the reval machine in the school.

Below is further information advising you on the new ParentPay which should be available from 17 October for school meals only. Trips taking place after the school holiday will be added then.

This system has been piloted within the authority and is proving very popular with parents.  We are confident you will be pleased with the benefits it will provide.
