We are looking forward to seeing pupils and staff next week.
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.
Fife Council can provide free school meals and a school clothing grant of £100 per child if households are on a low income. We would encourage anyone who is entitled, to apply, regardless of whether they intend to take it up – the school’s funding is supported by this.
For further information and to complete the online application, please use the link below.
It’s worth noting that MyFife cards remove any stigma associated with free school meals for young people as the smartcards are loaded with credit and no one is paying with cash.
