Lots of things happen in our school that you might like to know a little bit about. If you are ever unsure of anything please get in touch with us in school.
How do I get in touch with school?
By telephone 01875610382
By email firstname.lastname@example.org
Through Twitter @ormistonprimary
or by popping into to ask at the school office. We are happy to answer any questions you might have no matter what!
What does my child need to bring to school?
Every child needs weather appropriate clothing. We go outside in all weathers so wellies, umbrellas and sunscreen are important to have. We sell a waterproof trouser and jacket set for children to keep in their school bags should the weather change at any time.
They will need a school bag that can carry their reading bag, fitness kit, water bottle and any other essentials they might have. Children do not need to bring their own stationery or pencil cases.
We encourage children to drink water throughout the day. They should bring a water bottle into school with them every day. There is a water machine in school that they can use to fill their bottles up. Children are responsible for taking them home to be cleaned and then returning them to school. Please make sure these bottles have names on them.
We have a tuck shop to sell healthy snacks each day. Items are priced up to 50p.
Red Reading Bags
We provide every child a reading bag to use to carry their school books to and from school. This helps to keep them in a good condition and to keep the squashed banana from snack time away from them! Please contact the school office if you would like to replace your original one. A replacement will cost £3.00.
Free School Meals
Walking Home From School
Children in the nursery and in primary one and two must be dropped off and collected every day. It is important that we are notified if there will be someone different from usual collecting your child. Please try to make arrangements in the morning so that your child knows what to expect. From Primary Three it is the responsibility of each parent to decide what is best for their individual child.
There is a Lollypop crossing guide to help children to cross the road safely in the morning and at the end of the school day. They are not in place at lunch time and are stationed at the bottom of the nursery hill at the end of Hillview Road.
There is a lot more information in our school handbook but please contact us if you can’t find the answer to any question you might have.
