Holy Cross Primary

School Closures

The North Lanarkshire Council website has been updated with information for parents and guardians on how ICT is being used to support learning and teaching in schools and how it can be used at home home if there is internet access. The information will be particularly relevant in the winter months when service delivery may be interrupted if we experience severe weather.

GLOW – All children have been given their glow details which you’ll find inside their homework diaries; this tells them their Glow user name and password. Lots of links to useful educational websites have been added to our school Glow pages.
