Extra In-Service Day – 8 June 2009

All schools in Scotland have been asked to carry out an extra In-service Day this session and for the next two sessions as well.  This is to give schools time to develop the new curriculum called ‘A Curriculum for Excellence.  You can find out more about this at www.ltscotland.org.uk/curriculumforexcellence.

 As a result of this we will be closed on Monday 8 June and the children will return to school as normal or the Tuesday.
