We have issued the following letter to all parents in this week's maildrop. Please take a few minutes to read it.

Dear Parent/Carer,
The Parent Council works with the Headteacher to develop and engage in activities which support the education and the welfare of the pupils. 
At our meeting last week a number of issues were raised which are causing serious concern among staff, and Parent Council members, and we would ask for your support to deal with them. 
Congestion at School Gates at home time – over the first weeks back at our refurbished school the crowding outside the gates is causing concern that someone will be injured due to the lack of space available. In order to minimise this congestion Mrs McLellan has decided that all P1 and P2 will leave the school by the Campbell Street gates. Although this has helped there is still a large crowd gathering at the gates. We would therefore ask everyone calling to collect pupils from school at the end of the day to:
  • Wait outside the area covered by the crash barrier in front of the gates, i.e. about 5 metres from the school gate, we will put up signs to highlight this area;
Where possible arrange for your child(ren) to meet you a little bit away from school gates without putting themselves at risk, i.e. without crossing roads; and
Move away from the area near to the gates as quickly as possible to alleviate any congestion.
Standing in the roadway - a number of people collecting pupils from school are putting themselves at risk of injury, perhaps serious injury, by standing in the road behind the crash barrier. Yesterday there were at least 15 such people, some on their phones paying no attention to the vehicles around them. This not only is dangerous but sets a bad example to the pupils who learn from example. 
Double Parking / Parking in bus bay or on zig zags - the old problem of parents trying to get their car as close to the school gate as possible has re-emerged since we moved back to school. This is illegal and Police Scotland has been asked to deal with this issue as a matter of urgency. The area is covered by CCTV and these images will be available to the Police to support prosecutions. Please park your car safely and walk with your child(ren) to school. This will reduce the risk of anyone being injured and you will not receive a ticket from Police Scotland. 
School Crossing patrols – there have been a few complaints that drivers are not showing any respect to our school crossing patrols (lollipop men/women) by failing to stop when they enter the road or driving too fast towards the crossings. Can I ask everyone to show them some respect to avoid any accidents. 
With your help we can make the journey to and from school safer for everyone.

Latest Update

User Rating:  / 0
Latest news re moving back.

After discussions with the Council we can confirm the following:

The work to reinstate the retaining wall will start on 29 June. The delay in this is due to the Building Warrants etc that are required;
The work is expected to be complete on 7 August
Children cannot move back before work starts due to Health & Safety concerns;
Council will apply for Exceptional Closure days on 17, 18 and 19 August so children will return to school after summer break on Thursday 20 August (This is dependant on completion date being achieved).

Despite stories to the contrary we are assured that the Council are not aware of any 'hole' being found.

We will keep updating as further information is relayed to the Parent Council.

User Rating:  / 1

Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) is the national policy for improving outcomes for all children and young people.

The wellbeing of children and young people is at the heart of GIRFEC, which looks at children’s wellbeing in eight areas: safe, healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected, responsible and included. These are sometimes shortened to‘SHANARRI’.

We’d like to find out how much you know about the approach. Please take a couple of minutes to complete this short questionnaire – your responses will help us to support parents, children and professionals. 

This survey is anonymous. Individuals and individual responses will not be identified in the reporting of these findings.

Parents are invited to complete an online questionnaire at
