Weekly Update for week beginning 28th October 2019 now available below
We are looking at how we can raise awareness of the different apps and technology that young people in our community are accessing. Please see link below for a parent guide to Friends and Followers on social media that has been produced by National Online Safety. We hope that you find this useful and that it answers some questions that you may have.
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.
Well, we’ve made it to the end of a very busy academic session. We welcomed Ms Penrose as Rector in August; we saw our pupils head up The Polar Academy; we held our inaugural Senior Sportsman’s Dinner; the U18s football team swept all before them; our partnerships with business and the wider community were strengthened through a number of initiatives; we worked closely with our cluster primary schools; our pupils starred on the stage at the Byre Theatre; pupils participated in the Scottish Learners’ Panel, and our pupils achieved success in a number of activities at local, national and international level.
We’ve enjoyed every minute of the session and hope that you’ve enjoyed sharing in the achievements of our pupils and staff. We hope everyone has a great summer and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in August.
You can see all of our videos on the Bell Baxter HS YouTube channel.
