Coming back to school! How can we help?
02.10.2020 Head Teacher’s End of Week Update
Good evening families.
I hope you are well and have had a good week. It’s been another busy week at the Royal High Primary School, with the introduction of our Homework model, classes sharing Tweets about their learning, a Parent Council TEAMs meeting and Miss Stephanie Wallace joining Primary 2 for a 3-week block as a ‘Closing the Gap’ teacher, along with all of the other learning and teaching taking place in this new way of being at school.
PARENT COUNCIL HEAD TEACHER’S UPDATE
On that note, I have attached my Head Teacher’s update from the Parent Council Meeting, which contains an overview of what it is like for us being back at school. My hope is that it gives you a greater insight into what happens on a day-to-day basis in school.
TEST AND PROTECT INFORMATION
I have been asked by the Council to share this link for Test and Protect leaflets. These leaflets have been translated into numerous world languages and are available on NHS inform here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-test-and-protect-coronavirus-service/
PARENT ZONES AND SAFE ROUTES IN THE PLAYGROUND
To support us maintain the 2-metre distancing guidelines, I’ve asked Mr Scott to paint some lines to indicate our safe parent zones for adults to wait in at drop off and pick up time. This is because our older pupils use the playground for their PE lessons which have to take place outdoors just now.
When you are in these zones, please remember to keep 2-metres from other adults not in your household.
Mr Scott will also be marking Safe Routes round the playground to help children and adults avoid crossing through class groups.
We are all about minimising risk and keeping everyone safe.
Thank you for your support in keeping within these zones.
CONSIDERATE PARKING – South Mellis Park
Please can you not park in South Mellis Park at drop off and pick up time ?
We have plenty of other roads around the school where you can park. We would encourage a ‘Park and Stride’ approach where possible.
We are keen to keep a good relationship with our local residents and this would really help show our support.
NICK BERRY, PROJECT MANAGER, LEAVING – 12TH OCTOBER
I am really sad to share that Nick, our amazing project manager, is leaving us to head up another project. He has become a real part of our school community since the works started and is very well liked by the children and staff alike.
We will really miss him and wish him all the best in his new job.
I will let you know who will be replacing him as soon as I hear.

As ever, please keep in touch and let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Take care, keep well and have a lovely weekend.
See you next week.
