Just a reminder that we will be hosting this Monday 25th September at 630pm.

 Highland Council Numeracy Development Officer, Kirsten Mackay, will be giving an update on developments  in numeracy practice and how you can support your child.

We will also be discussing our progress with pupil profiles and how we will engage pupils and parents in the learning process.

Please email me if there is anything else you would like us to discuss.

Speak out. Stay safe.

As part of our continued drive as a Rights Respecting School, we have invited a speaker from NSPCC to come and present assemblies on pupil safety, rights and protection from harm.

NSPCC: “As the UK’s leading children’s charity we’re committed to making sure we’re there to help schools around the country keep their pupils safe.”

Below is a link to the highly relevant content that will be shared, at an age appropriate level. This will give you a basis for dialogue with your child after the assemblies if they come home with a response or questions. The assemblies, and associated P6/P7 workshops, will be on  Monday 25th September.

Parking-Ensuring Safe Access to School

No Parking Sign - Various Sizes Available In response to complaints from neighbours and parents, there may be cause to start putting polite parking notices on cars.

This is in the spirit of keeping all our children and parents safe and to encourage considerate life-long  habits as our pupils grown into adult drivers themselves.

It would be even better if we didn’t have to resort to the notices!
