In-service days

Our two in-service days have seen much activity. On Monday, we discussed a new curriculum model to fit the new 33-period week, followed by colleagues working in subject groups on moderation activities. On Tuesday, we worked on nurture, Developing the Young Workforce, and parental engagement strategies. We also spent time as a whole staff on starting to redefine our shared vision for the school, whilst Alan Donnelly, our new Project Coordinator (PEF), was able to demonstrate some of the activities he will undertake with young people to help improve confidence and self-esteem, in turn raising attainment.

Remembrance Assemblies

Today we held five Remembrance Assemblies. Our S6 History students gave a presentation on the theme of remembrance, whilst our team of chaplains also contributed. At 11.00am the whole school observed a two-minute silence; the end of the silence was marked by Alex Hadfield (S4) playing “The Last Post” very movingly outside in the amphitheatre.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme

I wrote recently to advise of a meeting which has been arranged to see if we have parents who might be interested in becoming involved in running the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in school. The date given was Wednesday 8 November 2017 at 6.00pm.  Please note that this date has now been changed, and the meeting will now take place on Thursday 9 November at 6.00pm.

Please accept apologies for this change. We look forward to meeting with parents interested in helping deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.

David Barnett

Head Teacher
