School Safety

Happy and Safe



It is important that we create a community in the school where you know that your child will be safe and happy.
The school as a society requires rules and these must be obeyed by every pupil. Discipline is therefore very much our concern. The relationship between pupils and teacher is similar to that between child and parent, requiring mutual consideration. Most cases of indiscipline can be rectified by a quiet word from the class teacher or reprimand from the Head Teacher. We try to have a positive approach to discipline by encouraging and rewarding good behaviour with a variety of awards.
The school has an Anti-Bullying Policy. We stress that any concerns regarding bullying should be reported to the Head Teacher.

Medical and Health Care

 In the event of any child taking ill or having an accident in school, parents are contacted immediately and the appropriate action taken. Parents are asked to inform the school of any particular medical requirements which their child may have. Talks are given to the children in school, on subjects such as dental health, general hygiene and positive health care during class and assembly time.

Supervision of Playgrounds

An adult presence is provided in playgrounds at breaktimes in terms of the School (Safety and Provision of Pupils (Scotland) Regulations 1990.) Our school janitor, pupil and clerical support staff fulfil this role.

Wet Weather Provision

During wet weather pupils are kept in class. Support staff and the janitor supervise classes.
