Mental Health Week 1st to 7th February


The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is

Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself. This is important all year round but we think right now we all need to remember that we need to take time out and to Give Emotions Time.

In the learning packs that you are collecting from school this week we have included a wellbeing grid and have given some resources for families linked to creating worry dolls and mindfulness colouring.  There is a paper copy of some art activity ideas from the Place2Be and a grid of other activities that your family may find useful.

The learning grid includes links for parents to East Renfrewshire Council’s Healthier Minds resource and also a Children’s First Guide from Emma our Wellbeing Support Worker.


Term 4 Update – Remote Learning

Learning at Home Guidance for Parents and Carers (002)

We hope that you are all keeping well and are thinking about all of our families at this time.  The link above is a guide for you that we hope will give you useful information to support learning this term.  This will also be in the home learning section of the school website along with lots of other activities.  The booklet has links to take you directly to sections of the website or other helpful sites.  It will also be emailled directly to all families with more information.

Take care and stay safe


ACTIVE LEARN – Heinemann Active Maths

Here is a guide for parents about using Heinemann Active Maths – this is accessed via Active Learn which your children all have their log in details for.  Teachers will allocate activities suited for your child.  Please don’t worry if there are no activities uploaded for your child yet as the teachers are focusing on Google classroom just now and helping your children to learn how to use this.  We thought this information would be useful to you when we start to fully use this.  Literacy Planet is also accessed via Active Learn.

MAY DAY HOLIDAY 2020 – Change of date

As you may be aware, the UK government has recently announced a change to the date of the Early May Bank Holiday 2020.

The first May Bank Holiday has been moved from its usual first Monday in May ie 4 May 2020 to Friday 8 May 2020 to coincide with celebrations for the 75th anniversary of VE Day (See https://www.gov.scot/publications/bank-holidays/ ).

East Renfrewshire Council’s Education Department have made the decision  to change the In-Service day for May as follows;

Monday 4 May 2020               Open to pupils

Tuesday 5 May 2020              Open to pupils

Wednesday 6 May 2020         Open to pupils

Thursday 7 May 2020             In-service – staff only

Friday 8 May 2020                  Public Holiday – School closed


Additional in-service day granted by the Scottish Government in May will be Tuesday 26 May 2020

Carlibar will be open Monday 5th March

We will be open as normal on Monday.  Please take care walking/driving to school in the morning. We will asses the playground area in the morning if this is too slippery children will be brought in the main entrance door.  Staff will be outside to direct your children.   Looking forward to seeing everyone back.


Primary 7 parent meeting about our Dounans residential visit will go ahead at 3.15pm, slightly later than planned to allow the car park to clear after the 3pm pick up. We would appreciate it if P7 parents can arrive after 3pm.  Thank you
