A quick reminder to parents and carers that North Lanarkshire Council is a digital authority and as such, our Mrs Dunn has recently sent reminders re the parent portal. This system allows for school trips and lunches to be paid, in addition to recording absence and many other features. Thank you in advance for using these new and efficient services to make life a bit easier and more convenient for you.

Upcoming Christmas events


Our Christmas activities have been going very well and children thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas lunch.
As you know our movie duvet day has been changed from the last day of term to Friday 17th December. Children are permitted to bring in some snacks to eat during the films, although not to share with others. They can also wear comfortable clothing , with the exception of Primary 4 to 7 as they will be taking part in filming for their Christmas Concert. This will be posted on Glow for parents to access, next week.

Primary 1 to 3 have just finished filming for their nativity play and they. Sound and look fantastic. You are certainly in for a treat. Details of when the recording will be posted on Glow will be with you shortly.

Christmas parties start tomorrow and the school have provided snacks, drinks and prizes. Children are permitted to dress up for their parties.

The Christmas raffles will be drawn on Friday 17th December and you will be contacted via telephone should you win a hamper in order to arrange pick up. Fingers crossed!
Although these are very challenging times for schools, our pupils have never missed out and we have adapted traditional school events to the current climate. A huge thank you to all of our school staff, who have made many sacrifices so that our pupils can be provided with very good quality, consistent education .

On behalf of all of our staff at St Bart’s, I would like to wish you all a happy and Holy Christmas and hope that ‘Santa is good to you’.

Kindest regards,

Deirdre Bolland,

Head Teacher

Huge congratulations to our wonderful Primary 5 girls who enjoyed success in the freestyle dance category. All of your friends at St Bart’s are so proud of you.What a wonderful achievement.

Parents and carers please be reminded that Parents  evening appointments will continue the same format as last year. Mrs Dunn has been in touch and allocated times so that you are able to receive a phone call from your child’s class teacher. We look forward to sharing your child’s progress with you on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
As always, a big thank you to our parents who continue to wear masks and social distance at our school gates. This is for the benefit of our whole school community and your support is very much appreciated. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

September Update

Dear Parent/ Carer,

Please see the latest update from Public Health in respect of low risk contact. Thank you in advance for your continued support re wearing face masks and distancing at our school gates.

Kind regards,

Deirdre Bolland,

Head Teacher

——————————————————————

 

Dear Parent/Carer
Primary school
I write to confirm that your child may have had ‘low risk’ contact with a person who has COVID-19. This means they may have shared a classroom or had some other low risk contact in school.
There is no need for your child to isolate unless you are contacted separately by Test and Protect and asked to do so. Your child should continue to attend if they are well and do not have to self-isolate for any other reason. Whole classes are no longer asked to self-isolate if someone in the class tests positive for COVID-19. Your child will only be identified as a contact if they have had prolonged close contact with the case – e.g. same household, overnight stays.
Please be reassured that for most people coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. Children are at particularly low risk of illness from coronavirus infection. For those people who are eligible, vaccination is highly effective at preventing severe disease.
What we are asking you to do;
• Please be vigilant for symptoms of COVID-19. If you or anyone in your household develops symptoms of COVID-19 then all household members must self-isolate. A PCR test should be booked as soon as possible for anyone who has symptoms. Your whole household should stay at home until the test result comes back.
• Wherever possible your child should take a lateral flow test before returning to school, and should continue to test regularly (twice-weekly) thereafter. Your child should not take a lateral flow test if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days. Testing can help to reduce the likelihood of spread in schools by catching infections early. If the test is positive your whole household should self-isolate and you should arrange a PCR test for your child. Please ensure that all lateral flow test results, whether positive, negative or void, are recorded on the online portal at: www.covidtest.scot or by phoning 119.
To help reduce the risk to your family and your school community, please also follow wider Scottish Government guidance;
• Arrange vaccination as soon as possible, if you or anyone eligible in your family have not yet been vaccinated. Further information is available at www.nhsinform.scot/covid-19-vaccine. Vaccination is our best defence against COVID-19 causing anyone to become seriously unwell.
• Wear a face covering in line with guidance, keep your distance, keep rooms ventilated, and wash your hands with soap and water regularly.
• You and the rest of your family, including primary school-aged children, can access free test kits through the Universally Accessible Testing programme, which is available to everyone in Scotland.

How to arrange a COVID-19 test
Lateral flow tests: Free test kits are available to all secondary school children from the school. Please
contact the school directly if they have any problems accessing tests. Free at-home LFD test kits are
available for you and your primary-school aged children by collection from COVID test centres or
pharmacies, or delivery by ordering online. More information can be found at:
www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested/pages/no-covid-symptoms.
PCR tests: Book a test at NHS Inform for your nearest COVID-19 test site. There are drive-through,
walk-through, and mobile testing units across Scotland which are open from 8-am until 8pm, 7 days
a week. A full list of sites can be found at Gov.Scot. Or you can order a home PCR test kit online, or
by calling 119. A test will then be delivered to your home. To return you can either drop the test at
your nearest priority post box, or if you are unable to go out, you can also call 119 to book a courier
collection from your home.
