Dear Parents/Carers,

RRS Gold Award – Wear Yellow day

We had a fantastic morning in the Stage Hall.  This was the first time the whole school had been together in over 2 years!  We all celebrated our Rights Respecting Schools Gold Award with singing and fun.  Many thanks to Mrs Nicol, Ms Dobie and Ms Doig and the Rights Respecters and all our children for all their hard work and effort over the last year!


We are hopefully moving towards every child wearing our school colours.  A few parents were in contact asking about the school sweatshirt.  There is no obligation to wear the branded sweatshirt, however, it would be good to see all children in a blue sweatshirt (generic is fine), blue jumper or cardigan. 

PE kit should be either a house colour or plain t-shirt (no football colours please) and can be worn under the sweatshirt or brought in the school bag.  Any questions or assistance with uniform, plesse contact the School Office.


The weather is definitely changing.  Please ensure your child wears a coat to school.

Late coming

It is essential that our children arrive to school on time as they could miss valuable learning time.  Please make the lines in the morning!
