Water - children are allowed to have a bottle of water [with a sports cap] on their tables during class time. Only water is allowed no juice or fizzy drinks please.
Snacks - can we suggest that children bring in no more than two snacks for playtime, this will allow them to have time to play. As a Health Promoting school children should be encouraged to eat some healthy snacks throughout the week.
Money - if children have to bring money into school, for any reason, it should be in a labelled envelope stating name, amount and what the money is for.
Personal Learning Plans - PLPs shall be sent out at the beginning of each term, Maths and Language targets are set by class teachers. Health targets are set by children after discussing with parents at home. PLPs should be returned promptly to school as Health Targets are displayed on wall to remind children of their chosen target.
The PLPs are then returned to parents at the end of term to discuss and evaluate your childs target. Children will be encouraged to self assess their own perfomance using the Traffic Light system i.e.
green - very good, amber - good, red - room for improvement.
All Primary 1 are entitled to a free school dinner as from January 2015.
Please discuss with your child before school what they are doing at lunch time. The school dinner menu is on the website and children should be aware of what colour of tray they are going to have before coming to school. The children self register at the start of the day and this will help to quicken the process.Children are able to buy a carton of milk for 20p.
If you have any concerns about your child feel free to contact me to arrange for a time to meet.
Thank you, in advance, for your continued support.
