We recently sent home a survey from the NSPCC along with a consent form.  We are now ready to complete the pupil surveys in school but still have a number of outstanding consent forms.  Please return your child’s consent form to school a.s.a.p.  This is a really worthwhile project and I am keen that all pupils take part.  If you have any concerns/queries or if you have misplaced your consent form please contact school.

Road Safety

Constable Sydney Henry visited school today to speak to the children about road safety.  I encourage you to talk about the messages he shared with your child – I am sure they will be keen to tell you all about the visit.


A copy of the results of the parent questionnaire is being sent home today.

Thank you again for your support in completing this.  The results have been shared with the Board of Governors and staff and will help us as we plan for the future development of the school.


P7 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to RADAR and learnt a lot about keeping safe.  We apologise for the last minute change in pick up time and thank you for your assistance with this.


Reception and Primary 1 would like an outdoor sandpit for use during outdoor play.  If you have one that you no longer use or if you could build/make us one please speak to Miss Roe or Mrs Boyd.

School Nurse

The school nurse has asked us to send home forms for completion by parents in advance of her visit on Thursday 12th May.  Please check your son/daughter’s school bag and return this form to school by Monday 18th April for collection by the nurse.

Music Tuition

Parents who pay termly for music tuition are reminded that this money is now due.
