Weekly Update 5th June 2020


As we come to the end of another week, I fully appreciate that you will be, as we are, anxious to know the plans for returning to school and the blended learning model for August will look like. While Highland Council meetings are taking place on a daily basis with all involved parties, final decisions on this are yet to be made. Management staff will be working in the school building next week to complete initial risk assessments and identify floor plans for moving forward. This is a large task which will follow very clear and strict guidance from the Highland Council.

I am hopeful that we will have further developments to share at the start of next week and will get that information out to you as soon as possible. In the meantime, our arrangements for online learning will continue as they have been. Please be reminded and reassured that learning at this point is consolidation. There will be clear frameworks in place for assessing where pupils are at when we return to school and that will be our starting point to inform next steps. You are all doing your very best in difficult circumstances!

Just a reminder that pupils in P4-7 have 2 assignments each week to submit via the google classroom and we encourage pupils in P1-3 to send in a photo each week to show us what you have been up to. Teachers will be in touch with parents directly to follow up on these where necessary.

As always, we very much appreciate your continued support and I look forward to having more information to share with you next week.

In addition to the school update today, please see a letter issued to parents from the Highland Council in to regards their current position around the reopening of schools.
