The council’s website has now been updated with information about free school meals and clothing grants for session 2021-22, and a link to information about the School Age Payment has been added to the page. The online application forms for free school meals and clothing grants will go live on 12 July on the same page: https://www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/free-school-meals
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.
Our friends in Glasgow have created this Active Advent Calendar – the ER Active Schools team are going to take part and they would love as many families as possible to join them! All you need to do is encourage your children to take part in the activities below each day of December and don’t forget to tag the school and @activeschoolser in any photos! Cant wait to see them!
Please take a moment to catch up on the Parent Council’s work over 2017/18 by reading through our Annual Report. As always, please get in touch on email@example.com if there is anything you want to discuss or if you can help in any way.
The International Day will take place at 2-4.30 on Sunday 29th April.
Please help if you can by completing the form in the link below. It is intended to be a fun, family day for everyone so a good turnout of helpers, even for a little while, means everyone can enjoy the day.
Please tick ALL the times you can help – though we will only need you for one slot each (excluding set up / clear up which will be all hands on deck!)
None of the jobs are onerous and it should be a great day!
We have recently revised our Promoting Positive Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies. We value your contribution and welcome any feedback you may have. Please click the link below to respond. Responses can be made until Friday 10th November.
On Sunday, we are having the second in our series of Action Days where we are hoping to create a fantastic new mud kitchen, construction area, climbing hill and various other enhancements to the playground. It would be great if you could join us.
Feel free to come for all or part of the day – whatever time you can spare. If you can it would be good to bring any of the items listed below.
Label anything you bring and make sure you are kitted out to survive mud, water, paint or all three! Camping chairs, snacks/drinks and gloves would be sensible too.
