Parent Club ‘Boosting Family Wellbeing’ campaign

The Parent Club ‘Boosting Family Wellbeing’ Campaign is launching this week. The campaign provides tips and supports parents to introduce positive interactions with their children into their daily routine. Different households face different challenges – but one thing everyone has in common is their mental health, and the importance of looking after it.

The Boosting Family Wellbeing campaign will familiarise parents with principles that build children’s happiness, confidence and independence – things like empowerment, safety, choice, working together and trustworthiness. These simple, everyday tips can help families reduce stress, improve children’s development and strengthen long-term bonds between parents and children.

This campaign is now live and will run until the 12 September on radio, digital, OOH and social channels.

Update Whitestar Bus

Whitestar have been in touch to confirm that the first stop Coach 5 will make is on Stamperland Avenue (can’t access Moray Drive) and the second stop will be Stamperland Gardens.  There is no disruption to Coach 6.

In relation to face coverings – this is an extract from the Scottish government guidance:

  • This has been updated so that only young people aged 12 and over are required to wear face coverings. This means that children aged 5-11, who were previously asked to wear face coverings, no longer need to do so.

Adverse Weather Contingency Plan

As we come into more wintry weather conditions, I would like to outline the arrangements we have put into place should the weather conditions become extreme.

Should there be a snowfall our janitors will clear a path from the main car park to the front door of each of the buildings and the stairs leading from the main building up to the junior department will also be cleared.

The path to the rear of the school leading up to Glenwood Nursery will not be cleared by the school’s janitorial staff.

During periods of severe adverse weather the Council will endeavour to do everything in its power to ensure that schools remain open. However, should our school require to be closed, as much notice as possible will be given to parents. This may take the form of an email, memo in the school bag, and a notice on the home page of the school website.

East Renfrewshire Council’s official website will also contain up to date information regarding the impact of the adverse weather conditions on Council services including schools.

Should the school require to be closed during the course of a school day; no child will be allowed to make their way home unsupervised. Parents, having been contacted by text, will be expected to make arrangements for pupils to be collected from the school. If you have recently changed any of your contact details, please inform the school.

Pupils who normally travel by school bus will be escorted to buses by school staff provided that this service is still operational, otherwise the children will remain in school until collected by an adult.
