P1 – First day of school

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our children on Monday 19th August for the new school session- especially our new Primary One children.

Primary 1 parents/carers have been sent some information about the first day in the post. Please click here to access a copy of this letter.

P7 Hoodies

East Renfrewshire Council Trading Standards and Prevention Department has highlighted a concern regarding the P7 Leavers Hoodies. In particular, that some of the hoodies have a free running hood cord. The products themselves are not unsafe, they are small adult sized hoodies, but in order to comply with legislation surrounding children’s clothing, free running cords are not deemed safe for children under 14 years of age.

For safety reasons, if small adult sized hoodies were ordered, parents are advised to remove the cords from the hoodies.

Many thanks

Halal Menu Option

Crookfur Primary will shortly be offering children the option of a Halal Menu as part of our lunch service.

A letter has been sent home today to give parents/carers more information. A copy of this letter has been uploaded to the Recent Letters Home section of the website and a sample menu can be accessed here.

The Halal Menu option will be introduced from week beginning Monday 18th June.

Best wishes

School Update- Monday 5th March

We are delighted that Crookfur Primary and Nursery Class will be able to open as usual tomorrow morning.

Both and ERC and parent volunteers have been busy ensuring that our pedestrian access routes have been cleared of snow and gritted. Cold weather is expected to continue so please do take care on approach. Doors will be open from 8.50am and we look forward to welcoming the children back.

Many thanks for your patience and support

School Closure – Friday 2nd March

As the Amber Warning for snow has been extended, weather conditions are not conducive to safe travel and as a result Crookfur Primary and Nursery Class will remain closed tomorrow (Friday 2nd). Staff and children should not attend.

We hope that over the next few days sufficient snow clearance can be carried out in order to grit our access routes to school and I am optimistic that we will open as normal on Monday. Please continue to monitor our communication channels- Twitter, website and ERC media for further updates.

I do apologise for any inconvenience, especially to P3A. We will reschedule your assembly soon 🙂

Best wishes

Mrs McGuigan
