Welcome to Session 2019-2020

  1. Welcome back to Term 3!   (Article 13 – Get and Share Information)

Welcome back to Term 3!  There are lots of exciting opportunities in Term 3 of 2020 to look forward to, including British Science Week in March.

This term we welcome Mrs Carson (Early Years Practitioner) to our Early Years team and she will be supporting the newly formed red group until the end of June.  Miss O’Donnell  is joining the teaching staff team and will be working with us every Tuesday and Friday until the end of the session.

The first week back in term 3 has already seen our library getting a face lift.  Our NAC Library Development Officer, Helen Stewart, has offered more ideas and spent a day helping us reorganise the books.

Our next Parent Council  meeting is on Monday 27th January 2020 in the Gateside Village Hall at 7pm.  Everyone is more than welcome to attend and we are really looking to find some new members.  Being on the Parent Council does not require a huge commitment and you don’t even need to attend every single meeting.  We need parents who are willing to help out during big school events and to perhaps come up with some new fundraising ideas.  Everyone already on the committee are friendly and welcoming and we hope to encourage a few more to join.  Please come along and give it a go.

The 2019-2020 start of session with useful information can be found here.

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. Thank you!
