Welcome to Session 2021-2022

Welcome to Term 2!   (Article 13 – Get and Share Information)                                                                                                         

Dear Parent/Carer

We will continue to operate a soft start in the mornings and staggered collection times.  We have also been advised by Education Scotland to continue with the mitigation’s already in place until further notice.  Thank you for your cooperation with this.
Can we please ask that you are mindful about where you park and turn when you drop off and collect your children. We have had complaints from residents about parents/carers turning in residential driveways or parking across drives.  Let’s work together to ensure we are keeping our children safe and respecting our community.
There will be no playground supervision until 8.45 am and children will be shown to their classes from 8.50 am onwards.
The staggered exit times have reduced congestion at the gates and have made it safer for our children.
Exit times continue to be as follows:-
2.35- 2.45pm EYC
2.50 pm   Bus Children
2.55 pm   P1/2
3.00 pm   P3/4/5
3.05 pm   P6/7
Early Years will continue procedures already in place for drop off (8.45am) and pick up (2.35pm to 2.45m).
Parents are still not allowed in school unless there are extreme circumstances.  If you need to hand something in please call ahead for someone to meet you at the gate or use the buzzer when arriving at the school.  We often have the side door open for increased ventilation so do not walk straight in, please use the buzzer.  Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us keep our children and staff safe.

Seesaw is working very well and in the event of children having to self isolate, Seesaw will be used to share work with your child.

Thank you for all the Harvest donations to the North Ayrshire Foodbank.  These have been greatly appreciated.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need us.

Take care!

Mrs Logan

A new NAC policy to promote smoke free school grounds can be found here.   (Article 24 – Clean Environment)

Please continue to park safely at pick up and drop off times.  Remember that it is against the law to park on solid white lines and against the law to leave your car running whilst stationary.  Residents have raised this issue with the school on a number of occasions now so please be respectful to our environment and school community. 

(Article 36 – Children have the right to be protected from harm, Article  24 – Children have the right to a clean environment, Global Goal 13- Climate Action)

Our road safety committee will be assisting in the mornings and on occasional afternoons with the help of Mrs Cairns. This, in the past, had had a positive impact and most cars visibly slowed down as they passed the school.  Please inform grandparents/child minders/relatives who are picking up your children to park sensibly.  Parking on the pavements increase the risk of our children being hurt crossing the road as their sight lines are considerably reduced. We would also like to discourage drivers from turning in Reek Street. Thank you for helping us keep our children safe! (Article 36)
