Notice 11/10/2018 – Communication From School To Home

Dear Parent/Carer – As of 29/10/18, we shall use e-mail + Xpressions only (not texts) for sending out letters which contain lengthy content and/or attachments as our method of communication.

Notice 20/08/2018 – School Transport Team

Just to make you all aware, we are currently having issues with our card printer which we use for pupils bus passes, and are now unable to print them. We will include a slip for any pupils who will not receive their pass to say they should use the letter as a temporary pass until the printers are fixed.

This will affect all Privilege pupils, Primary and Secondary (they get a new pass every year of a different colour) and all New P1 entitled pupils (the Secondary should have the pass from the induction days).

We can only apologies for this inconvenience, we are awaiting IT to get back to us hopefully with a fix. We will update you as soon as the issue is solved.
