The school uses a number of tools to disseminate information to pupils, parents, carers and the wider school community: see below. We feel it is important to share information about the working life of the school e.g. events, achievements, changes, new initiatives.
Please take a look at some of the online platforms – in addition to the school website and Groupcall – we use and “follow us” on Twitter and Facebook:
Parents and carers can register with the school app – information will be sent out next week – to receive information straight to their mobiles.
If you haven’t done so, we are encouraging parents and carers of our new S1 pupils to read and complete the school’s acceptable use policy for ICT before the start of term: see below for link. Once signed off, pupils will be able to access the school network to support their learning.
The policy sets out the expectations of pupils when they are using IT facilities within the school. Parents, carers and pupils should carefully read the policy and submit the form acknowledging that they understand its contents and agree to our expectations; pupils’ responsibilities will be covered again in class.
ICT acceptable use information and form
Just a reminder, as per the school calendar, the school will be closed on Monday, 6th May for the Public Holiday. The building is closed to staff and pupils.
For health and safety reasons, we would like to advise parents and carers that it is essential that pupils are dropped off at the front of the school at the designated “Drop Off Zone”. It is not safe to drop off pupils at the back gates of the school.
Thank you for help with this matter.
Mr D. Trowell
