  • Main entrance: Work will be done on the front porch in the October break.

Main School Gates

For the safety of the pupils we have decided to close the main school gates at 8.30 am every morning and they will not be opened until 9.05 am.  This new arrangement will take place after the October break.

The closure times will remain the same at the end of the school day i.e. 2.40 – 3.35 pm (Monday to Thursday) and 12.10 – 12.35 pm (Friday).

A reminder that nobody should be parking in front of the green gates within the school grounds.  This area must be clear at all times to allow access for emergency vehicles.

Walk to School Week

Walk to school week runs from Monday 5 October to Friday 9 October.

As usual the school will be organising a Walk to School Bus. This will operate from Monday through to Thursday – four mornings only.

8.30 am                 –               (former) St. Ninian’s Church

8.50 am                 –               Ashgrove

8.55 am                 –               School Crossing (at school)

Put a walk into your child’s day. Join us on the walking bus! Parents are welcome too!
