Extra fund raising can be done by individual classes where the children and class teachers agree.
Links between home and school are encouraged and welcomed. At pre-entrant stage, children will be invited to visit the school for a morning or afternoon at an arranged date- during this visit, older infant pupils will entertain the entrants for a short time and thereafter, the entrants will spend some time in the classroom with the teacher. At the same time, parents will be invited to attend a meeting with the Head Teacher when important issues relating to the school can be discussed and questions answered. Also at this meeting, the class teacher will demonstrate some of the material which the children will be using and give information on the teaching and learning of those materials.
Our BLOG is updated every weekend and text messages sent out.
Parents are also invited to help at school events e.g. sports day, assist with parties etc. Also to help at Out Of Hours School Learning Clubs e.g. Football and Cross Country.
The Head Teacher is always available for consultation with parents to discuss a pupil’s progress.
The school has an active Parent Council. Their fundraising has benefited the school greatly e.g. purchase of extra resources, supporting the pupils’ educational experiences.
Links have been established with various agencies in the community:
The school has links with Lenzie Union Parish Church as outlined in the section on Religious Education and Religious Observance.
Contact is maintained with Senior Citizens in the area and they are invited to attend organised school activities e.g. Concerts, Daffodil Tea.
Sometimes our pensioners add to the children’s overall learning in topics by adding personal experiences.
The school can be used for evening activities. Details can be obtained from the Community Letting agency – address is in the section on Community Services.
Contact is maintained with all playgroups and nurseries in the area particularly prior to times of infant enrolment and induction afternoons. Our own – Auchinloch Primary Nursery Class commenced in January 2006.
Whenever required, Police Constables make visits to the school during the session to talk on safety matters in general. Our local constabulary also help on other matters.
Auchinloch Primary accepts pupils from Chryston High School, Lenzie Academy and other local high schools on work experience placements during the session.
