School Gate

The main gate is now locked during the school day from 9am onwards. Any parents entering school grounds should do so via the side gate beside the car park gate. Pupils are still to be dropped off and collected from the main gate. We appreciate your support with these measures.

Late arrivals

If your child arrives to school late they may be required to enter school grounds via the side gate. Any P1 to P4 late arrivals should enter the school building via the main entrance at the office. P5 to P7 pupils should head straight to the mobile.


If a pupil is off sick a phonecall to the school office should be made on the first day of a pupil's absence. On a pupil's return a written note explaining the absence must be given to the child's teacher. Attendance is monitored by myself at the end of each month and a note for any unaccounted for absences will be sent out.

School Dinners

If your child is ordering a meal please send a labelled envelope on Monday morning, with the exact money inside and stating the days you would like to order a school dinner. In order to help kitchen staff organise meals please send separate envelopes for siblings. Meals are priced at £2.60 per day.
