Communication Wednesday – 11th March

Supporting and improving our learners’ wellbeing

Supporting and improving our learners’ wellbeing is a high priority of ours. Through professional learning we have increased our knowledge of how to promote the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of our learners. In order to evaluate our progress so far can we please ask you to complete this short survey?  Learners on P4-P7 will complete a similar survey and children in P1-3 will with the support of their teacher, submit a class response. The outcome of the survey and any next steps will be shared via the March newsletter.

Thank you in advance. Your responses will help shape our improvement planning.

SchoolPay

Please pay for all lunches, nursery fund, trips, panto etc. through SchoolPay – please contact school if you have not registered. We can give you your access code. This is applicable for all children from Nursery to Primary 7.
Your child will always be given a lunch. If they order one through the classroom or present themselves at the dining hall, even if you have given them a packed lunch, this will create a £2 debit against your SchoolPay account, which will need to be paid as for as the lunch has been made.

In rare circumstances, cash can be taken. Please note these circumstances are exceptional. Please let the school know if you have no access to the internet to make payments through SchoolPay.

If your child does bring cash into school to pay for a lunch, no change will be given. The cook supervisor will bank the amount handed over and credit your child’s SchoolPay account. If you require any assistance with paying for lunches or events, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Friday Packed Lunches – please order all Friday packed lunches through SchoolPay by Wednesday each week.
