Important: Schools Closed

Message from Graeme Smart, Head Teacher:

As you will be aware the First Minister announced today that all Scottish schools will close from Friday 20 March. We are currently planning the provision of education via chromebooks and other devices and will provide as much information as possible over the next few days. The situation is changing almost by the hour at present but we will do everything we can to continue our pupil’s education and to keep you and the whole school community informed of any developments. I would urge all pupils where at all possible to come to school for the rest of this week to ensure that we are all as prepared as possible for what may well be a long term period of closure.
