Last Wednesday, 29th May, we welcomed the P7s from our cluster primary schools up to Bell Baxter for the day. The P7 pupils, supported by the S3 monitors, had the opportunity to get to know the school throughout the day as they participated in a number of activities – Trash Fashion Show, Treasure Hunt, LRC Escape Room and DofE activities.
This is only a small part of a transition programme which has run throughout the year; the P7s will visit us in June to follow their timetable for two days.
We hope that everyone had a good day and we are looking forward to you all joining us August!
To ensure that our new S1 pupils can access the school network as soon as they arrive at Bell Baxter, we are encouraging P7 parents and carers to read and complete the school’s acceptable use policy for ICT: see below for link.
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.

The school hosted the very first Cluster Dance Show on Friday evening. The event was the culmination of the work done by the Sports Ambassadors and Dance Leaders with our cluster primary schools – delivering dance sessions and supporting extra-curricular clubs.
A big ‘thank you’ to pupils and staff from Springfield PS, Auchtermuchty PS, Falkland PS, Dairise PS, Castlehill PS and St Columba’s PS who participated in the show. Also, the event was supported by community dance groups such as JML, Joyce Anderson Dance School and Diamonds Allstars.
A great night of dance which couldn’t have gone ahead without the support of all the volunteers. Everyone did an incredible job!
Well done to all of our pupils who, alongside pupils from Madras College, went along as volunteers to support the Fife Active Schools and Triathlon Scotland event this week.
You all did your schools proud at the event! Another great opportunity for developing skills for life.
We welcomed over 200 P7 pupils from across our cluster to attend a P7 social dance transition event on Tuesday. The event enabled our P7 pupils to experience life at Bell Baxter, and helped to break down fears surrounding PE and extra-curricular activities.
Thank you to the 50+ senior pupils who helped with the event – their encouragement and teaching of dances was invaluable! We hope everyone enjoyed their time at the school.
