Dear Parents/ Carers,


It has been a very busy term in school with lots of children’s achievements to celebrate.  Please take a little time to read the newsletter below which tries to capture some of the notable success for our children this term.

School Easter newsletter

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our children, families and staff a very happy and relaxed Easter break.  We look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 15 April for the summer term.


Kind regards,

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Please see attached the PE timetable for all classes for term 4.

I would also like to take the opportunity to remind you of the Aberdeen City policy on jewellery and PE.


PE Guidelines


The Aberdeen City Physical Education guidelines state clearly that all jewellery must be removed for PE.

All our children are aware of their PE days.  Therefore, we would ask for your support in ensuring that on these days all jewellery is kept at home.


Jewellery is not permitted to be worn during PE lessons for reasons of personal safety.


The only exception to this situation would be if a child had recently had their ears pierced and the removal of the stud earring may increase chances of infection.  In this situation we would ask that parents place tape over their child’s stud earrings before coming to school. Teaching staff will not take on this responsibility and any child wearing stud earrings without tape will not be able to participate in PE lessons.


The school cannot be held responsible for the loss of any item of jewellery children bring to school.


Thank you for your cooperation over this matter.


Colin Nicol

Head Teacher

The winners of the House Points Prize this term are Burnbanks.  Well done to them!  The prize will be outside games and some Easter treats on Friday between 11am and 12am.  Children who are in Burnbanks are allowed to come to school in their own clothes (no football clothes please).  Please ensure that they are dressed to play outside.  Any children who have dietary requirements will be accommodated with appropriate alternatives for treats.
