  • COVID-19 Update – Parents are reminded that the school must have an immediate contact telephone number and email address should the need arise in the coming months. Please forward to stating also your child/ren’s class.
  • We are slowly reducing the volume of traffic arriving at the school. We would encourage pick up across the ‘Blue Bridge’. Please be mindful of the houses in this area and the business, that their entrances and exits are not blocked at any time. All Blue Bridge walkers must leave by Gate 1.
  • Well done to the increasing number of walkers and cyclists that complete the daily route to and from school, we have really noticed the reduction in cars around the school due to this.
  • Only one pick up should be made at the 2:00 p.m. time and 3:00 p.m. time. If you have children in both P1 & P2 then pick up is at the latter time of 2:15 p.m. Your child will be brought to the ‘Master’s Hall’ to wait on their sibling. Likewise, if a Primary 3/4/5 pupil that has a sibling in P6/7 should wait in the ‘Master’s Hall’ for their sibling to finish at 3:15 p.m. (No adults should be waiting at the pick-up points for that 15-minute period)
  • Adults are reminded that they must maintain a social distance at the gates of the school. We would encourage the use of masks at these points due to the large gatherings at any one time!!!!
