We are looking forward to seeing all of our pupils again when we return to school on Monday 15th August. It's rumoured that the sun is going to make an appearance for us - we are all keeping our fingers crossed!
Over the summer our staffing was confirmed, so there have been a couple of changes:
Primary 4, Room 6: Mrs. Lesley Cullen
Cover in Room 1 (Friday afternoon) and 4 (Thursdays): Mrs. Kathryn Orr
CCC Teacher: Mrs Gill Frullani
We have 50 Primary 1 children starting with us on Monday. They should arrive at the front door for 9.30am and come in with their parent. They can be collected at the front door again at 12pm. From Tuesday, they should come into their own playground in time for the bell at 9am and will be discharged from their cloakroom door at 12.15pm. Full days begin on Monday 22nd August!
Before the summer, you were made aware of the new procedure where parents, carers or older siblings should not enter the playground. Children should come into school via the P1, side or back gates and make their way to their class lines when the bell rings at 9am. Members of staff will be present at all gates and in the playground in case any help is needed! Children will be dismissed as normal at 3pm, please make sure they know which gate to meet you at if you are collecting them.
As ever, we are in for a busy year and I look forward to seeing all of you again very soon.

At the Parents' Night in March the school sought the views of parents, we appreciate everyone who took the time to complete the questionnaire, those views are vital to help the school improve. - Click here to see the results of the survey.,
Crawforddyke Primary School and South Lanarkshire Council have the health and safety of every pupil, staff member and visitor to the school as a priority. As such we have policies and procedures in place. The school has an emergency evacuation action plan and security policy in place, and these are devised and agreed in conjunction with the Council's Health and Safety and Risk Management teams. The procedures are renewed annually or in the event on an incident.
The August Newsletter is now available but has also been issued in hard copy.
We hosted a Parent's Workshop about our Spelling and Reading Programs. The evening began at 6.15pm and finished by 7.30pm. It was for all parents, across Primary 1 to Primary 7. This offered the parents an opportunity to come and hear about how their child learns the skills of spelling and reading in their classroom and how parents can support them at home. Click here to see the photographs from the evening. The school has producesd two leaflets to help parents; click here for the Reading Strategies leaflet and click here and for the Guide to Support Spelling at Home. Hopefully we'll be able to upload the two presentations soon for anyone who was unable to attend the workshop.
