Welcome to Coatbridge High School

Dear Parent/Carer

It is an important and exciting time as your child makes the move from primary to secondary and our aim is to make the transition as smooth as possible. We hope to do this by developing a strong partnership between your home and the school which will continue throughout your child’s school career.

We are committed to providing a caring and supportive environment for your child and a high quality education which will eventually enable them to achieve a positive destination in further/higher education, training or work.

We expect all our pupils to achieve high standards in pupil work, behaviour and appearance.  In Coatbridge High we have five main expectations of all our young people. We expect them to arrive on time, prepared for learning, keep hands, feet and unkind words to themselves, follow directions straight away, listen to the person who is supposed to be talking and take care of materials, equipment and the environment. We also have a strong emphasis on praise within our school and if your child meets our five expectations they will receive Praise cards, good news letters and be invited to take part in the many reward events and end of term activities on offer. Our motto is Dare to Dream; Aim to Achieve which encapsulates our belief that it is important to be aspirational and believe in yourself and work hard to achieve your goals.

I look forward to meeting and working with you over the coming years.

Yours sincerely

Christine Creaney

Head Teacher
