arriving at school
Please be aware that access to the playground in the morning is from 8.30am. This is sometimes slightly later on a Monday if the staff briefing is longer than usual. Pupils, parents and carers are asked to wait for a member of staff to arrive at the front of school before any pupil walks down the side of school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
On Monday 8th February we welcome pupils and staff from Castle Carrock School who will present an assembly on Internet Safety. This will add to the work pupils will be doing in this regard on Internet Safety Day – 9th February.
