Key Worker Form Return

If you are an eligible key worker, who has absolutely no other suitable childcare arrangements then your child can attend school and school transport will run as normal. Please click the link below to find the required pro-forma – this needs to be completed and can either be sent electronically to:

Similarly, you can fill it in and send it in with your child to be handed in to the school office as they arrive. If you are unable to do either of these then the school will contact you to gather all of the relevant information as required.

COVID-19 – Update for Parents 23/03/2020

Please click on the link below for the latest update regarding COVID-19.

COVID-19 Update – 23.03.2020

Although all schools officially closed on Friday afternoon at 3pm, we recognise our duty to support Key Workers in posts which ensure that essential services can be delivered and cover tasks within the local community which support the vulnerable and aid community resilience.  This service is for families where both parents/carers are key workers or in the case of single parent families, where the main care giver is a key worker.

It is essential to stop the spread of COVID-19 that people who can work from home do work from home. The remaining education support service should only be accessed by those who absolutely require it to enable National Health Service and other critical services to continue and also for vulnerable young people. We greatly appreciate your cooperation with this.

Supporting Children during unsettled times – a message from our Executive Director

Dear Parents /Carers

Following advice from the Scottish Government to close educational establishment today, we fully recognise that from today children and young people may be at home for a long period of time and we have produced a suite of materials to support their learning – further information about materials will be sent to you in due course.

Understandably, this is an unsettling time for children, young people and their carers and many people will be feeling anxious about the current situation and the impact that it may have on the health and wellbeing of family, friends and colleagues.

For this reason we have also included information to help you reassure your child.  Many of these resources have been developed in collaboration with South Lanarkshire Council.  The document in the link below provides some advice and guidance.

Supporting Children

We will continue to up-date this resource and ensure that it is widely available online.  You will be notified of these updates next week.

Thank you for your on-going support during these challenging times.



Derek Brown

Executive Director
