Coltness HS – P7 Transition Video

The 18th & 19th May should have been an exciting Transition Event for Primary 7 pupils heading to Coltness High School after the summer.  Unfortunately, this event couldn’t take place however, the management team at Coltness High School  have created a fabulous video to virtually introduce themselves and give you a little bit of guidance.  They are looking forward to seeing you when the school reopens.

INFORMATION FOR KEY WORKERS

Key worker information

School Support for Key Workers

The list of schools below will be open from Tuesday March 24 for the children of key workers. All other schools will be fully closed.

It is essential, to stop the spread of coronavirus, that people who can work from home do work from home. If you have a partner who is not a key worker they must provide childcare. This is not business as usual and it is vital that this support being offered is only accessed by those who absolutely require it to enable NHS and other critical services to function.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should any child who has symptoms of coronavirus, or who lives in a household where someone has symptoms, present at school. The whole family must follow the self-isolation advice..
