Dear Parents / Carers
Mr Colin Nicol is the preferred candidate for the Head Teacher post at Loirston School. A start date for Mr Nicol will be arranged in due course.
We would like to thank parents and children for their support whilst we are trialling the self entry system to reduce the time it takes for the children to enter the school. As with anything new in a trial period there are often adjustments which need to be made.
Just to clarify, children will line up as normal and as soon as the door is opened by a PSA the first line, P1a, P3a and P7a will enter school first. The next line will follow on as soon as the previous line goes in rather than waiting to be directed by an adult. This will hopefully make enable the children to enter the school in a quick and calm manner. We will continue to review the self entry system whilst we are trialling it.
Loirston Newsletter – Update November 2017
Can we remind you that in the interest of the safety of your child please do not use the school car park to drop off or pick up children before or after school. It is acceptable practice if you have made a previous arrangement with the school.
Can we also remind you that in the interest of the safety of all our children please report to the office on arrival at school. The office staff will issue you with a badge which will allow you to walk to your destination. Thank you.
Pupil Support Staff
Following a meeting with the above staff group it has been decided that as of now the pupils should refer to PSA staff using their title i.e.
Mrs…….plus their surname
Miss…..plus their surname
Please see the list below:
Jackie Mrs. Barrister
Susan Miss Canney
Brenda Mrs. Flett
Jane Mrs. Mathieson
Doreen Mrs. Nelson
Linda Mrs. Somers
Morag Mrs. Stachan
Carol Mrs. West
Claire Mrs. Whiffin
Sarah Miss Work
Maureen Mrs. Middleton School Administrator.
We appreciate that this will not change overnight but gradually the pupils will accept the amendment. We very much appreciate your support with this change. Thank you.
Self – Entry
As we approach a colder weather period as of Monday we will be using a ‘self-entry’ system for pupils coming in to school. This means that at the beginning of each day, after break and lunch time, the PSA staff will open the doors for the pupils to enter school. The class teacher will either be in the peg area or in the class area. Thank you.
Children in Need will take place on Thursday 16th November (as there is an
In-Service day on Friday 17th November).
The P7 classes have organised lots of exciting activities in the hall in the morning. Classes have been timetabled for this.Morning nursery children can come through from nursery with their parents/carers after the morning session.
Activities will be 50p or 20p. There are lots of fun things such as Lucky Dip, Beat the Pudsy, Guess the Teacher and many more.
Children in Need are also accepting any old round pounds so if you are like me and haven’t had time to hand in any old pound coins to the bank bring them on Thursday.
Children can also dress up either in spots, yellow or as they please for a donation.
Thank you for your support.
