Admission to school
As the Head Teacher has teaching commitments, it would be appreciated if an appointment were made prior to visiting or enrolling pupils.
On enrolment parents are asked to complete a Phoenix Data Capture form which is used to create an electronic file. Emergency details as well as attendance records and national test results are entered into this file as your child progresses through school. The data is maintained in accordance with the Data Protection Act and will not be passed onto any other organisation without your prior approval unless this is a legal requirement. Should you wish to view this information an application for a Data Subject Access Report must be made to the Director of Corporate Services.
Pupils Outwith the Catchment Area
Parents should note that there is no automatic progression from a nursery class to the primary school, should their children live outside the delineated area. Similarly, pupils in Primary 7 who live out with the delineated area are not automatically entitled to progress from their primary to its associated secondary school.
Pupils under 8 years who live more than 2 miles from school and those over 8 years who live more than 3 miles from school (within the delineated area), are entitled to free transport. Application forms are available from the school office and at enrolment. Infant pupils may have to share transport with P4-7 and have to remain at school until 3.40pm.
The security system for the school is due to be upgraded over Summer 2021. This will provide a camera and buzzer entry at the main gate and upgrade the front entrance system. All doors will work on a fob system and will be has ‘alarmed’. Parents should enter by the main gate and door, using the visitor’s bell.
Pupil entrances automatically lock a few minutes after starting times. Pupils who are late should make their way to the main entrance where Mrs MacKintosh or Mrs Laird will sign you in. It would be appreciated if efforts were made to minimise such late arrivals for the benefit of all children and easing disruptions to learning.
