Earlier this month, Renfrewshire Council asked parents and carers to submit their questions on schools and nurseries. Thank you to everyone who took part, there was a phenomenal response with more than 1,000 questions.
Your most-asked questions were put to Steven Quinn, Director of Children’s Services, which you can see at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-schools. You can also find answers to many more questions there too.
Thank you for your continued patience and support for school and our ELC Class during this difficult time. We hope to see you back in our ELC Class as soon as it is safe to do so.

Coronavirus – national school closure
The Scottish Government has set out the route map for schools and nurseries to reopen for children and young people across Scotland. You can read a statement from Director of Children’s Services, Steven Quinn, about the route map on the council’s website.
It gives me great pleasure to be writing this welcome message to you in my role as Head Teacher of Bushes Primary School and Early Learning and Childcare Class.
From the moment you step into Bushes, it is clear that we are a school with an extraordinary community, who wish the greatest success for their children and who have a caring and supportive ethos at their core. You will find us to be a welcoming and nurturing school with talented children, dedicated staff and a devoted management team. It is my privilege to be leading our forward thinking and ambitious school.
Being a parent myself, and having taught across all stages during my teaching career, I fully appreciate how important each year of a child’s school life is towards preparing them for life beyond school. I am passionate about teaching, have high expectations of all children and will strive to ensure that our school supports all children to be the best versions of themselves possible. I firmly believe that every child has the ability to achieve amazing things. Our role at Bushes Primary School and Early Learning and Childcare Class is to support children in achieving these by providing both the right opportunities and a safe and nurturing environment.
You will find me committed to our school and committed to working alongside pupils, staff and parents to lead our school in the future. We hope that your child will be happy with us and will respond positively to the many opportunities we offer. If there is any matter you wish to discuss further, please do not hesitate to contact me. I operate an ‘open door’ policy and I am keen to work closely with all parents and carers, working in partnership to support all children to achieve amazing things.
