Hello Campie Community
This week’s HT update provided details of two surveys we would like you to participate in.
Whilst as a team we reflect on our successes and achievements, it is your child’s experience of school and the impact on their learning that is critical in helping us to identify what is working well and what we could do better. Therefore, your child is involved in providing their feedback and has a
voice in determining our next steps. It is also crucial that you can contribute to this process. The more contributions we have, the more accurate our evaluation will be and next year’s plan will have clearly identified priorities based on robust and valid evidence.
To prevent ‘survey fatigue,’ I have shared two surveys this week and politely request that you contribute to one more another next week.
As part of my HT updates I will detail the outcome and how these have been ‘mapped’ into our School Improvement Plan. Our Standards and Quality report will also provide insight into the outcome of both parental and learner input.
Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback.

Finding more ways to connect
We are aware that during this time, opportunities for find out more about the wonderful learning happening in school are more limited. We are therefore looking for ways for everyone to see and hear what’s happening in school. Technology has so many benefits one being that we can quickly capture special moments through photos and video and share them via our social media channels. Twitter is an excellent platform for us to share these snapshots. Often they are posted minutes after they have occurred – making it as close to real time as possible. Currently we have 810 followers. We would like to promote this way of providing you with a digital window into our school day. If you have not already followed us and you have a Twitter account – please do. If you do not have an account – maybe you might want to consider creating one – even if it is only to follow the learning at Campie? As well as the adults taking a lead in posting to Twitter we are looking to encourage our learners to play an active role. This opportunity will complement our Tools for Writing learning:
‘Using knowledge of technical aspects to help my writing communicate effectively within and beyond my place of learning’ CfE Literacy and English
‘Organising and using information – considering texts to help create short and extended texts for different purposes’
as well as
‘Digital Literacy: Using digital products and services in a variety of contexts to achieve a purposeful outcome.’ CfE Technologies

Dear Parents and Carers
December is here and the temperature is dropping – even some snow being forecast for this week! However just as it always does, December marks a special time in our school calendar. Despite the current restrictions, we want the end of this term to be every bit as special as it always is and have planned a range of festive fun for the remainder of this term.
As well as the important information about Christmas preparations at Campie please also look out for information about our Twitter account and a Group Call email request to send an updated consent to share photographs on our social media platforms.
With kind regards

Dear parents and carers
I hope that our annual report provides a concise description of progress in our improvement plan priorities, information of progress and achievement including wider achievement and identification of next steps and priorities for this session.

Guidance on processes for children returning to nursery.
Parents Handbook Nursery
New to Campie Nursery?
Our nursery team will be/have been in touch with you if your child is starting at Campie Nursery. Please follow the specific guidance given and once your child has begun their placement at Campie follow the guide attached here.
Following a review on 14.8.20 some changes were made to the arrangements in school.
· From 18.8.20 Children can bring their belongings into school in a school bag. Please ensure the school bag is labelled with your child’s name.
· The staggered drop off/pick up will continue this week. By Friday 14.8.20, the process ran much smoother and we hope that this will continue as everyone becomes familiar with the routine.
· Physical distancing. Please ensure that the 2m rule is observed when waiting to collect your child/ren and that there is a clear passage for children/adults making their way towards the bridge.

Dear parents and carers
This booklet is being shared to support the smooth transition back to our school building from the 12th of August 2020. We know that you will have many questions about what this will look like and I hope that this document will provide you with answers to these questions.
These arrangements will only be in place for as long as is required and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Where we discover that something is not quite working, we will find a solution and communicate that with our children and with you.

Time is just flying by! It seems like only yesterday that I was sharing my last update. I hope you are all well and finding many silver linings to brighten every day.
Please follow the link below to read the latest update.
As we begin June we find ourselves planning and developing ways to do some of the events that we usually have at this time of the year. We are living our Campie values of creativity and challenge! Despite our building being closed we want to make this time of transition as reassuring and as special as it always is and we will do all we can to achieve that.
