When the car park first opened staff numbers were much smaller. We are very lucky that over the years the number of staff at Eaglesham Primary School and Nursery has grown. We have Class Teachers, Support Teachers, Pupil Support Assistants, Clerical Staff, Kitchen Staff, Cleaning Staff, Wraparound Staff, Student Teachers, visiting Specialist Teachers and Outside Agency Staff. Please note that the car park is essentially a Staff and Visitors Car Park. School parents should use the dropping off point, ensuring that the children get out at the path side but should not park in the Car Park.
We ask that parents/carers are courteous drivers and park their cars to ensure the safety of all pupils. We are also an Eco School and would encourage parents/pupils to walk to school where possible. Where this is not possible we would ask that you park as far from the school as you can and walk the rest of the way. Most people move to the village to benefit from village life, part of that experience is being able to walk to school. Cars should not obscure the lollipop man’s view or endanger our pupils in any way. Giffnock Police, our Campus Police Officer and ER Road Safety Officers will continue to do spot checks to help ensure the safety of Eaglesham pupils.
It is important not to use/block our neighbours’ drives or car parks as there could easily be an emergency, therefore we would ask that, when dropping off and picking up your children from school or nursery, please do not park in the school car park, do not park in the doctor’s surgery car park and please be considerate to local residents and do not block driveways (we have had several complaints from residents).
On Parents’ Nights etc we will continue to open the playground for parking and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Choir on Tour
Our Choir will be singing at Silverburn for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice (11.30am-12.30pm, outside Next). Pupils should wear their shirt and tie, with their school jacket.
