S1 Lunch

Reminder that our young people within S1 should be remaining within school grounds during lunchtime. 

Drop off / Pick Up

A reminder that all parents are asked to use the relevant areas on the main road outside the school to drop off or pick up their child.  There is no facility within the school grounds and therefore no cars should be waiting here.

Data sheets

This week within the school bags there should be a brown envelope containing a data sheet that is personal to your child.  Please can we ask that you search the bag to retrieve this item, if not already done so.  It is very important that we hold the most up to date information and so the relevant paperwork requires to be checked, signed and returned to school via your son/daughter’s Register Teacher.

Absence from school

A reminder to all parents that if your son/daughter is absent from school then please can you contact the school office to inform us and state the reason asap.  It is important that we keep all of our young people safe, that is why we send out a groupcall message.  Please contact the office by phone, email or if it is a planned absence a letter is also acceptable.
