The school’s areas of focus this year will be:
Priority 1: To improve the wider learning experiences for all children by developing a more rigorous approach to outdoor learning.
Priority 2: To further development of the digital literacy skills of staff and children.
Priority 3: To continue to embed nurturing principles across all classes to ensure consistency of experience for all children.
Priority 4: To improve staff and children’s understanding of the purpose of and effective practice in evaluative feedback and assessment strategies.
In September each year, the Parent Council issue yearly calendars for every family. These detail all the significant family events in the coming year.
Our Parent Council are currently fundraising to help develop our outdoor spaces and also work hard to encourage safe travel to school through the School Travel Plan.
Each year the Parent Council hold fundraising events which helps to support initiatives which the children suggest. These vary each year though can include disco, bingo etc.
Sometimes we have to re-organise our class structures due to numbers of children. We follow Stirling Council Guidelines when doing this.
The Stirling Council document howclassesareorganised details how class restructure is undertaken.
The school staff team take a great deal of time and thought when restructuring classes in order to help support and develop our children. The class structure for the new year is normally announced in June to allow for some transition events to take place before the end of the Summer term.
It’s not always easy moving classes. Classes change all the time for a variety of reasons. Please see this document designed for children all about movingclasses.
