On behalf of the school I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone within the community who has pulled together over the last few days as we have dealt with these unprecedented times.
Staff have been working tirelessly both in school and in isolation to ensure that we are geared up for remote digital learning. We hope to be able to provide an excellent service to our pupils throughout the shutdown period. Your children should have received their GLOW logins and information on how to access these resources has been posted on the blog.
Teaching staff and SMT will keep in touch with our families on a regular basis. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. The enquiries email will still be monitored during school hours and we will respond as soon as we can. We are here to help as much as we possibly can.
We all appreciate that it is disappointing for pupils that the term has ended prematurely, however our efforts over the last few days have been focused on preparing for the period of uncertainty and ensuring that there is continuity of learning for all pupils moving forward.
Our best wishes go to our Primary 7 pupils. We are hoping that we get an opportunity to spend time with them before the end of June but this is by no means guaranteed. This will certainly be a year for them to remember but not for the reasons we had hoped. Their resilience will certainly be tested over the next few weeks and we hope they emerge stronger and more ready to take on the challenges that high school will bring.
Pupil reports which are due to go out on the 2nd of April will now be sent to you electronically. This will be done through your child’s glow email address. Please be patient as teachers will also be dealing with high volumes of traffic on their computers, also many will be volunteering to man the schools open for key worker staff, so this may take an extra bit of time. If you do not receive your report within a couple of days from the date above please get in touch and let us know.
Information will be provided to you on the situation moving forward through all the appropriate channels if and when it becomes available.
Once again our deepest thanks. This is a situation that no one could have predicted. It is in times like these that we all need to live up to our school values. Take care, be kind and most of all look after each other.
We all look forward to returning to Bishopton Primary all the stronger as soon as we are allowed to.
