Term 2 – November 13th Newsletter
COVID-19 UPDATE We recently had a positive COVID case in Nursery but thanks to the staff sticking to guidance some children only had to miss one day at Nursery. We follow Scottish Government guidance and have a thorough risk assessment to keep everybody safe. We request that parent/carers do their bit too.
Please – • Wear a mask at drop off and pick up • Social distance from others • Move away from the gates to allow pupils and staff to enter/exit safely
We had a poster competition to create posters to help remind parent/carers of these rules. Some of the posters will be put up on the fence for everyone to see. The winners of the competition are
Room 3 Alfie and Kyan
Room 4 Abi-Gail
Room 5 Zuzanna
Room 6 Millie

Dates for your diary Friday 20th Nov – Inset day – no pupils in school Friday 18th Dec – last day of term
Absences Please let us know if your child is going to be absent. You can contact the school on 01224 876621 before 8.30am and leave a message or phone after 8.30 to speak to someone. You can also text on 07860 030790 or leave a message on the Expressions App.
PE On gym day we are happy for children to wear trainers and joggers. Children should not wear jewellery and will be asked to remove it or cover it up for safety. Your child should also have access to water so should bring a water bottle to school every day. We will be using the gym hall more because restrictions have been lifted but will still be adhering to strict hand hygiene and cleaning regimes.
Mobiles Pupils are not permitted to bring mobile phones to school. In the past we have had phones broken and stolen and so we request pupils do not bring these expensive items to school. If they do bring a mobile by mistake, we will contact you and request that an adult comes to collect it from school gates.
Nursery As you know we are just waiting for the go ahead to occupy our new nursery. It is looking fabulous and we are very excited about the move.
