1 All Classes – PUPIL SAFETY

The ramps recently fitted at the front of the school have a non-slip walking surface to help prevent slipping/falling on the gradient of the ramp.  A running pupil was injured today when he fell on one of the ramps and cut his leg.








2 All Classes – Christmas Bake Off!

On Monday 17 December we will be having an inter house bake off. Bake something Christmas themed and bring in your entry in the morning to the Assembly Hall. The judges will be judging the taste and appearance of your entries during lunchtime. Anyone is welcome to come at lunchtime to watch as the judges make their decision. There will be a prize for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and each entry will receive house points. Make sure your bake is ready for the 17th December – that’s MONDAY!!

The S4 Achieve Group raised over £500 for the SSPCA and Dogs Trust by having a dress down day on the 16th November. Thank you to everyone and for the donations of dog food, blankets etc. which we intend to deliver this Friday. On Friday the 7th of December, we held a Bake Sale in the foyer at break and raised £128 for the homeless.  Thank you very much for your support once again. S4 Achieve







4 All Classes: Christmas Eco Tip of the Week 2:

Batteries! It is estimated that 30,000 tonnes of batteries are binned in the UK each year. New gifts at Christmas often mean that households go through a lot of batteries. Batteries contain toxic chemicals, do not biodegrade and are difficult to recycle. As an alternative, try using rechargeables or the new USB rechargeable batteries.
