Dear Families,

Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood Programme

We will be beginning our RSHP programme from the week beginning Monday 17th February.

Parent and carer guides for each stage are available on our website

The NHS have a handy guide on talking to your children about relationships and sexual wellbeing which can be accessed here:

The table below gives an overview of the themes covered at each stage.

Vision time

We are looking forward to our five week block of vision time starting on Wednesday 19th February from 13.30 – 14.15. Please let us know if you are able to support in any way. Please see the attached infographic for further details.

Sharing the learning events

It was lovely to see so many families at our P2 and P2/3 sharing the learning event on ‘100 days of school’. Thank you for supporting the event.

Parked cars and engines running

We politely remind all families collecting children by car around school drop off times to turn their engines off while waiting. This is so important from an environmental and health point of view. Thank you.

Education Scotland STEM newsletter

We were delighted that our Young STEM leaders in Primary 6 were mentioned in this month’s Education Scotland STEM newsletter.
