Timetable & Map of School

22 June 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

A floor plan of the school accompanies this letter to help you to visualise where your child will enter and exit the school in August. The children will have staggered times to enter and leave the school and we ask that you use the gates suggested to reduce the possibility of a bottleneck. The children’s breaks and lunches will also be staggered to reduce the number of children/adults in each of the areas at one time. You will receive a text message today to let you know which class your child will be in and which days they will attend school.

We have moved furniture in 18 classrooms/bases and we have tried as much as possible to minimise class teachers moving classrooms, hence the reason of the unusual ordering of a few classrooms on the map. When we are given permission to remove social distancing, the children in P3/2, P5/4 and P7/6 will return to their original class stages and we will inform you of the new classification.

 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced today that our very own P7 classes were chosen as the National Winners of the P7 Reading Journey as part of the Scottish Book Trust’s First Minister’s Reading Challenge. Congratulations to our P7’s who are moving on to secondary school; we wish you all the very best in your bright futures, and we will miss you here at Bankhead. The video that was submitted will be available on our website soon.

 

We wish you a very happy summer holiday and hope you enjoy the opportunity to meet up with more of your family. Keep safe, healthy and happy. We thank you for your continuous support and we will do everything we can to help your child be the best he /she can be.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Celine Mckinlay and all the staff of Bankhead Primary School.
