Our P5s have been part of this initiative for the last 20 weeks and will be showing off their new-found skills during a showcase to parents and carers.

This now takes place on Thursday 23rd January at 11am.

Parents/Carers of Primary 5 children all are invited to attend.

Due to the amber alert and latest weather updates, we wish to confirm that having considered the conditions and forecast for today, we have assessed the position for all schools in South Lanarkshire.

The decision has been taken to close all SLC schools/establishments from lunchtime today. The Council will post this information through web, facebook and twitter.

Children who have ordered a canteen lunch will receive their lunch and can be collected at 12.45pm. Any other child with a packed lunch can be collected at 12.15pm.

There will be no Nursery Session this afternoon.

We are currently receiving a large amount of phone calls which we are finding very difficult to answer - please continue to check the website and app. Many thanks for your cooperation.

The YMI Showcase for P5, scheduled to take place today, has been postponed. We are hoping this will take place next week - to be confirmed!

AS AT 7.45AM School and Nursery are expected to open as normal. All staff are making their way in. Our Breakfast Club is running. All children should enter via the front door. Our car park is very icy and snowy so please consider walking in.

Please note there is now an Amber weather warning in place. You should keep checking our App and Website for further details.

It is ESSENTIAL that we have current and up-to-date phone numbers for ALL children in case we need to reach you.

Please see below an update received from South Lanarkshire Council:
