Cashless Catering

Pupils moving on to High School will unfortunately not be able to take their Cashless Catering PIN numbers with them.

Please ensure that their accounts are emptied before the last day of school, or any money left on the account will be lost.

Pupils will be issued with their National Entitlement Cards and PIN numbers when they arrive at High School. They will then be able to put money into their account.

P7 Graduation Ceremony

The P7 graduation ceremony is on Tuesday 26th June. The ceremony will start at 9.45am.  Due to health and safety restrictions, and with members of the school’s pupil groups also being present at the ceremony, unfortunately we only have room for two members of each pupil’s family to join us.


The Pupil Council has organised a “Readathon Day” for this term’s school fundraiser.

Our Readathon Day will take place on Friday 22nd June.  Please dress as your favourite character from a book:  £1 donation. Everyone will have the opportunity to read a book for enjoyment either from the class library or one from home.
