Congratulations to Wendy Strang – oor new janny!

Congratulations to Wendy as successful applicant for our school janitor’s post, following Ronnie’s retirement.

Wendy has long been part of the school, with youngest about to start P7 and also a longstanding member of janitorial team – dedicatedly cleaning alongside colleague Christine, but now she will be an even more familiar face in and around the school day. Well done from parents and carers of PPS!

 

You Are INVITED

The PPS Parent Council invites all parents and carers to…..

 

You Are Invited!

This year, the parent council would like to invite all parents and carers, with children in PPS / Nursery to come along and take part in our Conversation Cafe. Pupils from the Rights Respecting Schools group will share with us – and PC and PTA are keen to share what we’ve been up to and to hear your views also, so we can set priorities for next session.

PPS AGM 2019 invitation Conv Cafe 2

We are delighted that we will also have David Gilmour (ELC) coming to share insights into keeping our children safe online – and Lena Hutton (Community Learning Development officer) sharing insights into the wellbeing of our children and building resilience. We will also hold our AGM, but it will be a very condensed part of the evening which everyone is welcome to stay for also.

Our Learning Community

Values Tree

It has been fantastic seeing the tree of values grow this year. Truly a kenspeckly display. Be sure to check it out if in at parent consultations this week – and the consultation area in the hall too.

Walkers Crisps recycle project.

Recycling at PPS

Recycle your crisp packets here.

Great news – several months ago PPS applied to join the Walkers Crisps Recycle scheme – and to nominate Pencaitland Primary School PTA as the charity to support from our collection point. Any crisp packets can be recycled, but there are a few ‘no’ items too.

All has been approved now – a real collaboration for parents and carers, pupils, staff team – and the wider community too! 

For more info check our facebook page or the website for Walkers Crisps/recycle.

Note: All links will take you to external pages.

The Learning Council have also been working across the primary classes on their eco-friendly project. You’ll hear more about that at the Spring Fayre!

 

 

 

School Evaluation

School Improvement Plan

Thanks to everyone who made time today to join staff team in school.

Focus and engagement.

An interesting session, and great opportunity for parents and children to give their views too.  If you missed out today, fear not, as our HT will set out similar consultation for parents and carers to access during the three parent consultation dates in the coming week.

If for any reason you can’t access those either, you can email admin@pencaitland.elcschool.org.uk to request a ‘home version’ of the areas being reviewed.

The Parent Council are inviting each family (PPS) to share their thoughts re school photos – to help us plan for next session. Please respond with your children’s views too.
