School Holiday

A reminder that the school will be closed to all pupils and staff on Monday 29th November.

S6 Head Team Update

This week has seen a buzz amongst staff as we launched our “decorate a window or door”competition. Staff have from the 1st of December to create their displays. Entries will be judged in the last week of term and we look forward to seeing them!

We are also beginning to plan for Christmas activities and look forward to busy month ahead. Although some restrictions still apply we are working hard to find alternatives and hope we can bring some festive cheer!

In other news seniors are working hard for their upcoming assessments. Many S6s are also finalising their UCAS applications ready to send off before Christmas.

Have a good long weekend, Head Team

S5/6 Parents Evening

Thursday 25th November was our S5/S6 Parent/Carer evening. We have had a variety of feedback and would like to gather some more information. Please could S5/6 parents complete this short survey:


Communication with Home

At the beginning of this session, the school implemented the use of groupcall texts and emails to allow us to communicate more regularly with home.  We introduced our individual positive emails from class teachers along with a daily groupcall for our agreed focus areas.

Following feedback from parent/carers along with staff we are altering our communication slightly.  Our weekly positive emails will continue however our daily groupcalls messages for the following categories will now be replaced with a weekly summary.  Staff are being asked to log occasions when a young person:

  • uses inappropriate language within the class or corridors
  • uses their mobile phone/iPad inappropriately
  • does not attend class
  • requires Time Out of a lesson
  • behaves unacceptably in the corridor

For each week, we will monitor and send home a letter with a summary.  For many of our young people the use of these groupcall texts have not been required and we will continue to promote our values.
