Transport Consultation

The timing of the General Election means that the June Executive Committee now falls within the pre-election period, which is the period between the formal announcement of the election and polling day. Given the interest in the secondary school transport consultation, and the high level of public engagement there has been, it is now intended that the Executive Committee will consider this proposal on 7th August rather than the 26th of June as previously stated.
In the meantime, the Consultation Outcome report has been published and is now available to view by accessing the following link:

P7 Ford Castle - Final Information

The residential trip has arrived and we are looking forward to the pupils heading to Ford Castle tomorrow and hope everyone is as excited as we are.

Can we remind you to provide a packed lunch for your child, to be eaten on arrival at Ford Castle. Please make sure that no other snacks or drinks should be given to your child as we do have several children with allergies.

In addition, all medication must be held by the school staff and appropriate paperwork completed - pupils must not have any undeclared medication.

All staff will be in regular communication with the school and will have mobile phones therefore no pupil is to take their own. Mobile phones found will be held by staff until they return to the school. If you need to contact your child, please contact the school office during school time and a message will be passed on, out with school hours can you please email Mr Dickson on and he will get back to you when available.

Dear Parent/Carer

A child aged 5-6 has lost a black Nike jacket. Can parents please check their child has come home with the correct jacket?

A polite reminder, can all parents ensure children's items have names on them. This way we can ensure items are returned if lost.
