Weekly Update 29/11/2019

St Andrews Day Holiday

A reminder that School will be closed on Monday 2nd December to all pupils and staff. We will be back on Tuesday 3rd December as normal.

Update with regards to our young people having access to Highcroft Co-Op

In an attempt to resolve this matter, a meeting took this week with the store manager and wider management team, along with our community police officer.  During this meeting we have agreed that the individuals who were involved in the unacceptable behaviour will be identified and appropriate action taken. This will take another few weeks and until then the store will continue to enforce the ban between the hours of 8am and 4.30pm. We are hopeful that this situation can be resolved and that the majority of our young people will be given access again.

Senior Parents Evenings

Letters were issued this week to parents for the S4-S6 Parents Evenings. The S4 Parents Evening is on Thursday 5th December and the S5 & S6 Parents Evening is on Tuesday 10th December. The online booking system is now open for both of these evenings. See letter below for more information.
