News from Mr Bewsey
As part of our ongoing efforts to raise attainment and recognise the achievements of our pupils, we will be introducing a monthly ‘Achievements Assembly’. The first Tuesday of each month will be devoted to celebrating the efforts, progress and achievements of our pupils. This will be an opportunity to recognise events both in and out of school. Children are, therefore, invited to bring in RECENT (within the last month) achievements to share with the school. We will then create a ‘Wall of Fame’ to showcase our pupils for all to see! A reminder about the monthly assembly will be put in the newsletter.
School Estates Review (letter attached)
You may have seen last week’s Berwickshire News article that explained the ongoing consultation currently in progress regarding all Scottish Borders Council schools. The article detailed the process concerning Eyemouth High School catchment. A full letter from Donna Manson (SBC Chief Officer for Children and Young People Services) explains the review process. Please take the time to read this letter and I urge you all to contribute to the next phase of consultations once details have been arranged. This is a significant opportunity to influence the future of schools provision in our area.
Pick up time
Please can all parents / carers of P1-4 pupils ensure they come to the school doors to collect children at the end of the day. Staff will not permit our younger children to leave until an adult is within sight. Thank you.
Excellent Inspection report
Our school kitchen received an excellent inspection this week. Michelle was commended for her high standards of hygiene and the standard of service she provides. Added to this is the recent increase in school dinner uptake with Michelle regularly catering for nearly 50 pupils a day (out of 58). Well done Mrs Wilson.
