Term 4 Learning Trees
Each term class teachers will issue each class with a Learning Tree. This will include information about planned learning within Literacy and English, Numeracy and Mathematics, Religious Education and Health and Wellbeing. In addition, the class context for learning will also be included and there will be a specific skills focus. Having this information about what your child will be learning in school enables you to further extend their learning at home through discussion and appropriate activities which would support this.

Term 3 Newsletter
In order to help raise attainment and support school improvement, information is gathered annually on the attainment and destinations of school leavers across Scotland.
The information presented here is designed to give parents a view of how schools are meeting the challenges facing Scottish education today:
- equipping children and young people with the skills, experience and attitudes needed in the 21st century,
- raising attainment for all, and
- ensuring every child has the same opportunity to succeed.
Thank you to everyone who helped, donated, supported and came along to the Easter Fayre. The Fayre was a great success and raised a fabulous £1462! This money will be used to support the children and young people across the school.
