Parent / Carer Contact Details
Parents/carers are asked to ensure that telephone contact numbers – home, work and emergency contact(s) are kept up-to-date and are numbers at which a response can be obtained in all normal circumstances.
In all cases of concern, please get in touch with us. We will arrange an appointment with the teacher, or Head Teacher if appropriate, to discuss these concerns. Whether your concern is about playground behaviour, your child’s learning progress or some other matter, we can find a solution if we know about it and discuss it.
Visits of Prospective Parents/Carers
Most of the children in this school and ELC live in the Appin area, join the ELC in the school and then transfer seamlessly into the primary school. A few others arrive here through different routes. No matter which route you take, you are welcome to visit both the school and the pre-school to discuss your options (Covid-19 restrictions permitting). Please contact the school office (01631 730345) to arrange an appointment to discuss your child’s education with the Head Teacher.
Once your child has been allocated a place you will be invited along to meet the staff and children, to find out more about the curriculum and to share information about your child.
Please see www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/education-and-learning/placing-your-child-school for further information.
During the pupil’s time at school, teachers may organise some activities which will take pupils out of school at short notice. These visits will be very local to the school (in general no greater than half a mile). Pupils will be supervised by their class teacher during these visits.
For any longer, pre-arranged school trips and all trips that require transport, official permission will be sought and Management Circular 3.25 will be adhered to – https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/education-circulars.
IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS REGARDING ANY OF THE ABOVE YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR SCHOOL DIRECTLY TO DISCUSS INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES
