Letter to Parents - Progress Reports, Uniforms, PC AGM

27th May 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you and your family are continuing to do your best which means having time out for yourselves, too, and enjoying the sunshine and springtime.  The media is providing lots of information about children returning to school in August, and as a school staff we are working out how that will look for Bankhead Primary School. When we have concrete plans, we will share them with you; we would rather get it right than speculate.  In the meantime if you require any paper copies of school work for your children, please pop by the school between 1pm-3pm Wednesday-Friday.

Progress Reports

Our plan is to e-mail P1-P6 Progress Reports to families towards the end of June and give all families a paper copy in August when the children return to school. Please respond to the text message that this newsletter was sent in if we do not have an up-to date e-mail address for you.

Primary 7 children will receive a paper copy of their report when they collect their Bankhead Primary School Leavers Hoodies, a parting gift from the Parent Council and Bankhead Primary School.

School Uniforms

If you would like to order Bankhead-embroidered school uniforms, please find the link for ordering school uniforms here. You can complete this form and post it with the cheque made payable to Bankhead Primary School Funds by June 15th for the uniform to be delivered to the school for collection at the beginning of August (date to be confirmed). Alternatively, you can go to school between 1pm-3pm Wednesday-Friday and fill out a school uniform order form and pay by cheque.

PE kits can be ordered when pupils return to school.

We realise that your child may have outgrown their school uniform from this year without really wearing it out, so the Parent Council would like to organise a way for families to exchange uniforms at no cost. If this is something you would like to participate in then please donate clean uniforms in bags, outside the main entrance at Caldwell Avenue between Thursday 28th May and Monday 8th June

On Wednesday 17th June, parents are welcome to come to school and choose from these donated items to help save money. (More details will follow regarding organisation i.e. Social Distancing) The Parent Council are really keen that recycling of school uniforms becomes part of our school calendar each year which is very helpful.

Parent Council AGM

The Parent Council will be holding the Annual General Meeting on Monday 1st June at 18.45 via Zoom. If you would like to come along to this, please email and an invitation will be sent to you.

Food Parcels

We have been very fortunate that the charity FARE is providing, with the help of Knightswood Secondary School and Yoker Resource Centre, over a 100 food parcels each week for our families. If your circumstances change and you require assistance, please respond to the text/Xpressions message that this newsletter was sent in and we can add you and your family’s name on to the list.

We hope you have a lovely week as a family.

Take care,

Mrs McKinlay and all staff of Bankhead Primary School
