All activities MUST be pre-booked on the ParentPay App with the exception of Skill School.


COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, keep them at home and do a Lateral Flow test.  If your child is tested for COVID, please forward a copy of the result of the PCR/Lateral Flow test to the school office.  If a positive result is returned, please contact the school office for further guidance.  If a child tests positive in any class, an email will be sent out to the parents/guardians of pupils in that class.

The guidance has changed; you DO NOT keep your child off school (Unless your child has tested positive!), an updated information email will be sent out if there is a positive case in your child’s class.


New Entrants – Primary 1 – September 2022 – The application process for those children due to start school in September 2022 will close tomorrow 28th January 2022.  Children born between 2nd July 2017 and 1st July 2018 (inclusive) must commence primary education in September 2022. If you know of any family that have a child due to start Primary 1 in September 2022, please pass on this information.


Healthy Break and Healthy Lunchbox – Parents/Pupils are reminded that the Healthy Break in the morning is a fruit break only, no biscuits, bars or other snacks.  Lunchboxes should contain healthy foodstuff; no fizzy drinks are allowed only water in water bottles!  Please note energy drinks should not be sent to school under any circumstances.


Google Classroom – Please log into Google Classroom frequently to check on updated content and make sure your notifications are turned on.  Primary 3 teachers will be setting a shape assignment this week, for completing next week, please login to access this work.  Primary 6/7 Open Nights are on their Google Classroom as some schools are going virtual this year.


SnapChat – We have had another incident in school involving snapchat.  The official guidance is clear; no child should have an account until they are at least 13 years of age!  For the safety of your child and their classmates we would ask that parents follow this guidance. We have asked that pupils do not set up group chats in any forum, WhatsApp, SnapChat, Messenger to name but a few. From past experiences it leads to bullying and the sharing of inappropriate material. Mobile phones if needed to be brought to school in exceptional circumstances must always be handed in to the class teacher.


School Show!!!!! – Delighted to announce that plans are under way to present our school show “ The Wizard of OZ” in May 2022. This is the first school show in four years! Children will be informed of audition times and show arrangements in the coming weeks. The staff are just buzzing with excitementJ


School Uniform – Children are reminded that they can wear an extra layer of clothing under their uniform to school if they wish, during the winter months as windows will remain open at certain times of the day.
