The bus company have confirmed due to an amber weather warning which is forecasting strong winds, school transport will not run tomorrow.
All other parents should make their own decisions about whether children should attend school, with the health and safety of pupils central to any decision.
We expect the school to be open as normal tomorrow but, any changes to school openings will be posted on the school messaging service at 8.00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

At Portree Primary School we value a home school partnership that continues to support and develop the full potential of every child. As part of this partnership and as part of our on-going self-evaluation procedures, we would like to hear parents’ current views about the school to help us plan our ongoing improvement agendas.
We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete the following electronic survey; if you would prefer a paper copy these are available from the school office or by telephoning 01478 613130
All online surveys should be completed (or paper copies returned to the school) by Friday 29th January 2016.
