PRIMARY 1 IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The school term begins on Wednesday, 25th August and you will already have received details of the arrangements for the first three days. From Tuesday, 31st August school starts at 9.00am for all Primary 1 children. The school gates will open from 8:45am to allow pupils to make their way into the classrooms where they will be supervised. Please encourage independence so that all pupils can come through the nursery/foundation stage gate by themselves.
Each morning there will be a short break from 10.15am until 10.30am. If you wish your child to have something to eat and/or drink at this time, (we encourage water/milk) please pack it safely in his or her schoolbag.
During the month of September, our settling in period, the children will go home at 12.30pm each day. Commencing the week beginning Monday, 27th September they will stay in school until 1.50 pm each day and will require a packed lunch or school meals.

If your child is off school, please email the school with a reason for their absence. If you require your child out of school early, please send an email or telephone the school and let us know. If someone who doesn’t usually collect your child from school is doing so, or if you are delayed, it is essential to let us know.
