Dear Parents/Carers

Please find below our weekly email with information for parents.

Our pupils have been using their presenting and digital technology skills to produce short films detailing the exciting learning that will be happening in each stage from P1 to P7 this term. We hope you enjoy this new method of sharing your child’s learning with you – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/Netherlee/2020/01/30/sharing-our-learning/

For information – Our school offers a Halal choice each day to pupils who require this. The Halal option is offered alongside our meat dish of the day, so for example, if there is steak pie available, there will also be Halal steak pie for the pupils who have registered to have this option. When the children order their meals – they still select their choice in the same way on the class whiteboard and their option is filtered to the kitchen where this is checked and ordered on their behalf. If the child has ordered a Halal option, they receive a different coloured band to the rest of the children, allowing the Kitchen to easily identify what they have ordered.

Have a lovely weekend.

Dear Parents/ Carers

Please find information below relating to the uniform consultation and attached the STEAM Newsletter.

Has your child received a P2 or P3 Read Write Count bag this autumn/winter? Please let Read Write Count know what you thought by filling out the Parent survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZT92MZC. Their prize draw for parents is a personal Read Write Count GOODIE BAG filled with books, games and activities for all the family to enjoy. The deadline to complete this is Monday 9 March 2020. Thank you!


Thank you for the comments, feedback and suggestions received so far in response to the ongoing Uniform Consultation. I am very grateful to get this response and I continue to be very interested in all constructive and helpful comments which I am taking time to consider carefully. I would like to remind you that I will be available at the PTA Uniform Sale on Wednesday (29th) if anyone would like to come along to discuss anything with me either about the ongoing consultation or any other matter.

I will of course keep you updated on any developments prior to the last PTA Uniform Sale at the end of May. However, I would again like to stress that there will be no deadline for children to wear existing uniform items and that these can continue to be passed to younger siblings for the lifetime of each uniform item. Thank you for your support with the ongoing consultation. Yvonne Donaldson

Have a lovely weekend.
