CRAIGHILL  PRIMARY  SCHOOL

Dear Parent/Carer

We hope to have Breakfast Club up and running again on Monday 23rd February following the February break.  The club will run from 8.30 until 8.50 each day.  Children will be offered fruit juice, milk, cereal and toast.

The cost of breakfast will be 50p and can be paid in advance at the beginning of the week or on the day.  Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will also be eligible for free breakfast.  This does not include those P1-3 children who are now entitled to a free meal due the government initiative but will include those who were previously entitled to free meals and are in receipt of the appropriate benefit

A note will be sent home if payment is outstanding at the end of the week and this should be paid at the beginning of the following week.  Unfortunately we are not able to sustain the Breakfast Club if children do not pay.  If this becomes an issue for individuals we will contact parents directly.

No children other than those attending Breakfast Club will be allowed into the school before the bell rings.  This is to ensure that we know exactly who is in the school for health and safety reasons.  Once children have finished their breakfast they will go out to play.  If the weather is bad the children will remain in the canteen with staff until the bell rings, they will not be allowed in other parts of the school.  Children who do not adhere to this rule will not be permitted to come back to Breakfast Club.

I will confirm a start date for Breakfast Club before the February break.

Yours sincerely

Car Park

CRAIGHILL  PRIMARY  SCHOOL

BUN  SGOIL  CNOC  NA  CREIGE

21 January 2015

Dear Parent/Carer

As you may know there was an accident in the car park the first week of term.  Luckily no one was hurt but the outcome of this could have been very serious had there been children crossing the car park.

I have become aware over the last two weeks that some parents use the car park to pick up and drop off.  I believe it has been requested several times in the past that parents do not use the staff car park for safety reasons.  Can I ask again, for the safety of all children, that no parent uses the staff car park.

This was discussed at the Parent Council meeting last night and I know many of you are also anxious about the safety of the children as they arrive and leave school.

A group from the Parent Council plan to meet to discuss a travel plan to further ensure the safety of all children travelling to and from school.  In the meantime I would also ask that you park carefully on Craighill Terrace and do so with consideration for the safety of yourself and others.

Again for the safety of the children can I also ask that no dogs are brought into the playground regardless of size or degree of cuteness!

Thank you for your co-operation with both of these requests.

Yours sincerely

Eileen Henderson
