Promoting Positive Behaviour/A’ Brosnachadh Sar-mhodh
We believe that our children behave in a very positive manner, most of the time! We try to promote this by being positive with the children and creating a warm caring, atmosphere to enhance learning and teaching. You can read our policy by clicking on the attached link: behaviour policy Sept 15
We believe that homework is really useful to help the children further their learning. In each class blog you will find the homework that is expected of that class. You can read our policy by clicking on the attached link: Homework Policy
From time there are incidences of bullying in the school which are always dealt with as soon as we are aware of an issue. Fortunately these incidences are very few and far between. You can read our policy, which includes a link to Highland Council’s Anti -bullying, anti racism and cyber bullying policy, by clicking on the attached link: Anti-bullying Policy
Additional Support Needs/Feumalachdan Taic-ionnsachaidh
All children need support to help them learn. Some children require more help than others. We follow The Highland Practice Model staged approach to assessing, identifying and supporting additional support needs. In this model every child has a ‘named person’ who is responsible for making sure that the child or young person has the right help to support his/her development and well-being.
If you have a concern about your child in primary school please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance or the Depute Headteacher.
Sometimes a Child’s Plan may be put in place to help organise, monitor and regularly review your child’s progress.
