Weekly Update 28/05/2021

We value our close working partnerships with parent/carers and our wider community and a reminder that if you have any concerns then please contact the school through our normal channels.  Any pastoral matters should be for the attention of the relevant PT Pastoral and whole school matters should be directed to our Senior Leadership Team.

School email: KelsoHS@scotborders.gov.uk

Thank you for your support with our mobile phone policy.  We have seen fewer interruptions to learning as a direct result.

We are also in the process of working with Scottish Borders Council in order to have more litter bins installed in the local community for our young people to use when they are off campus.  Please can you remind your youngster to place their litter in the nearest bin, we appreciated your support with this.
