Approaches to Remote Learning January 2021

Dear Parents. 

Following yesterday’s announcement by the FM, we met this morning to put plans in place for this week and the return in January. We are awaiting guidance from Inverclyde Council HQ which will come around lunchtime tomorrow.  We want to assure parents that as soon as we have this information, we will communicate it with you. We have contingency plans in place for many possible eventualities and we are confident that, as a school community, we will cope with and guide you through the changes and challenges we are about to embrace over the month ahead. 

As always, your support, patience and understanding is appreciated more than you will ever know and take comfort that we will work with each of you to ensure we are doing our best for your children and our families. 

Enjoy the rest of you weekend and we will be in touch soon.

Advent Hamper Raffle

The hamper raffle was drawn today. We are absolutely delighted with the outcome. We managed to raise a staggering £2228.30!!!!

Amazing school community spirit! Thank you so much to the Chair, Ian and to Wendy McKeegan who put together the hampers. Thank you to the members who donated towards them. Winners, please make a time with the office staff to collect safely.

This money will go towards the Christmas parties / food etc. It will also help children who are less well off during Christmas. We have also ordered 6 visualisers for the school to support learning and teaching in every classroom.
