Welcome back to another term at school. The children have all settled back in again well and are ready for lots of hard work and learning. This term is quite a long and busy one but don’t forget that we have a holiday weekend in February. Monday 15th February and Tuesday 16th February are holidays, and Wednesday 17th February is an In-service day.
As you will know, HMIe are visiting the week beginning 1st February. They will be inspecting the whole school; nursery, primary and secondary. The staff are already busy gathering the evidence the inspectors will want to see.
We have seen a real change in the weather this week; the snow caused quite a lot of excitement. Spare clothes in schoolbags are useful when the weather is like this, especially spare socks! We all know how lovely it is to have warm, dry feet after being out in the snow.
Keep an eye on the Highland Council website; it is kept up-to-date with any school closures. We always update the telephone line too when there is adverse weather information you need. Remember that the telephone line is only updated when we have something we need to tell you so, if you hear an old message; it means that everything should be running as normal.
