Our attendance this week was 94.1%, falling short of our 96% target. Let’s have a real push for the last two weeks of term for everyone to be in school everyday!

There were 136 late arrivals to school each day.

On Tuesday this week, Years 4, 5 and 6 are walking up to St Andrew’s Church to enjoy a Nativity Performance by the Church and some Christmas singing. This is a performance for the children (rather than by the children as in previous years) and sadly there won’t be room for families to attend this year. 

Years 1, 2 and 3 will be singing to families on Wednesday morning – please join us at 9am for some festive songs!

Please join us for our Christmas Fair – there will be lots to see and do, food to eat and presents to make and buy! Please be patient, we can’t open the doors immediately as staff need to dismiss children safely before they can get into position to start the fair. The fair will start at 3.10pm at the latest. Thank you in advance.

Instead of sending Christmas cards to each other, each year the staff donate what they would have spent on cards to ‘Save the Children’ and wear their Christmas Jumpers on Friday 13th December. Would you like to join us? Would your children? Everyone is welcome to join in Christmas Jumper Day – donations collected in the bucket kept at the office.

Finally a reminder that school is closed to children on Thursday this week as we are open to the public all day from early morning til late at night as a Polling Station for the General Election.

4M tartan design

This week we celebrated St Andrews Day and looked at all the hallmarks of Scottish culture such as food, dance, the white Saltire on the Scottish flag and tartan fabric. Tartan is recognised as a Scottish symbol the world over, and few other fabrics can claim to have such a deep and diverse range of meanings. Each individual tartan pattern is a point of pride for Scottish people and the children were hugely proud to be able to add their own unique twist on this emblem of Scottish culture.
