Due to the pandemic, IWBS Family Support Department has had to think outside the box in order to follow Scottish Government guidelines and still be able to offer support to the parents and carers.
From telephone support, walk & talks to garden visits, our group has now progressed to being able to have their first Pop Up Parents and Carers Group.
Staff, parents and carers alike were delighted to be able to meet in a small group in our local park.
The advice and support parents and carers give each other is invaluable and our parents and carers tell us they have missed this throughout the lockdowns.
Fairer Falkirk has announced an extension of their Data Top Up fund until the end of April. If you are in receipt of Council Tax Reduction, you can get £25 to help towards data connectivity. The school can apply for funding on your behalf. If you would like to be put forward for funding, please contact Paul Stones at IWBS on 01324 501090.

Due to the current levels of snow and ice making it dangerous to travel, IWBS will be closed today to staff and pupils. We hope to reopen tomorrow (Wednesday 10th February). Watch this space for further news.
If any pupils are having problems accessing Microsoft Teams, either through the Glow website or the Teams App, please contact the school for support. Staff are usually available during school hours to talk you through any issues, reset passwords, etc. If the relevant staff member is not immediately available, your details will be passed on and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
