Accord Card Balance Alerts

“Due to a technical issue, parents/ carers that have an email account with Hotmail, MSN, Live, Skype or Outlook may find that they don’t receive their child’s weekly balance alert for their school meal cashless catering account. It’s most likely that the email can be found in your SPAM folder. The Accord Card team are working with our supplier to resolve the problem. In the meantime please do feel free to set up an email balance alert using an alternative email address or sign up to receive balance alerts by text message.

Artie’s Tartan Tales

I am pleased to inform you that Artie will be coming to school on Tuesday 6th March to perform stories and songs related to our current Health theme.

“Artie’s Tartan Tales” is a unique, interactive musical show, created and performed by the founder and star of the children’s entertainment phenomenon “The Singing Kettle”.

“Artie’s Tartan Tales” weaves traditional children’s stories and songs into an engaging and entertaining experience for all the family.

All stages from morning nursery to Primary 5 will attend as it is only relevant to those stages.

Could I ask that every child donate £1 to cover the cost of the production?

(This excludes Nursery as they have already made a donation.)

I’m sure that the children will enjoy the performance and it will enhance their learning experiences.

Keeping Our Children Safe

Police Scotland and other local professionals will be hosting a further live Facebook event

on the North East Police Division page on Wednesday 21 March 2018 between 7 and 9 pm.

 The topic on this occasion will be Social Media:


Thinking about buying a young person a mobile phone or computer but concerned how to keep them safe online?

Don’t feel up-to-speed on the latest social media trends and want to find out more?

Worried that a young person is at harm from a person online but don’t know where to start intervening to help?

We will be holding a LIVE Facebook chat on Wednesday March 21, 2018 from 7-9pm where officers and advisers who specialise in child protection will be on hand to answer any questions you might have on keeping young people safe while using the Internet.

We will also be posting advice and tips on the night to help young people be aware, stay alert and keep safe.

If you have a sensitive question to ask we will also have a private message function switched on during the evening so you can speak to us in confidence. No topic is off limits.


Join us on North East Police Division page on 21 March.
