Standards and Quality Report and School Improvement 

These two documents have now been added to the School Improvement page in the ‘Our School’ section of the website.  These detail Glenurquhart Primary’s work towards key improvement targets to raise achievement for all children this session and the plan for 2019/20 year.  It is a strategic plan that is updated annually and informed by our on-going self-evaluation that all our school community have been involved in.

A big thank you to all who helped with this last night.  A super time was had by all.  A special thank you to Mrs Woodhouse and her S6 helpers who were fantastic last night and to Mrs Graham and her helpers for purchasing and preparing the food.  Photos to follow on class pages.

Composite Classes

Highland Council have issued guidance for parents on composite classes.  This is almost the same as the one we had previously in place and has therefore replaced it.  It can be found on the ‘Polices’ page in the ‘Our School’ section of the website as well as below.  I am not yet in a position to give parents classes for next year but, with our current numbers, we will be looking at mainly composite classes again.

‘We are currently looking at ways to promote our fantastic range of kids easy dressing school wear, which makes life a wee bit simpler for children who have autism, difficulties with mobility and dexterity and of course we have our standard uniforms in stock.  So we have decided to hold a sensory evening with dim lighting, no music and only our children’s department would be open to make it more at ease environment to shop.  We will have a fully trained team on hand to assist with our customers orders, purchases and any questions about the products.

The evening will be held on Monday 24th June.  6pm-8pm.  Entry to the store will be through our women’s doors in the eastgate centre so car parking is available.
