Health and Wellbeing

We have now updated our Parents/Carers tab to include a new Mental Health and Well-being section.   This section of our website contains links to websites that have information and resources to help to support the Mental Health and Well-being of parents/carers and young people.

Drop off and collection

If the ice in the playgrounds do not clear overnight, we will open the main entrance and P1/2 entrance for children at 8.45am. Main access points will once again be gritted from the main gate to main entrance and the car park path to the P1/2 playground. Access from the rear gate at the bowling club will only be for the P1/2 playground.

With the mix of rain and a drop in temperature, both playgrounds can still be treacherous at 3pm. If this is the case we will release P1/2 children from the usual exit but P3-7 from the main door. As all managers and support staff are required to ensure all children are collected safely, please contact the office before 2.30pm if changes to your child’s collection are required.

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Wear Red Day

We have just received information about this year’s Show Racism the Red Card’s ‘Wear Red Day’ which takes place on Friday 6th October. This is a great chance for young people to get involved in anti-racism education, simply by wearing red!  As a Rights Respecting School, we are very happy to have the opportunity to become involved in initiatives which promote equality and diversity therefore we would like to take part in Wear Red Day 2017.

We would like all our pupils and staff to wear any red item of clothing on Friday the 6th of October. This could range from a red t-shirt to red socks or any other red accessory.

Our participation in this event is to promote the anti-racism message therefore pupils are not required to bring a donation on this occasion.
