Please do attend, if you can, as these are really useful support sessions that help to strengthen Home / School partnerships. A free Resource pack will be given to parents with ways to support your children at home at these meetings.

Please let teachers know you are interested in attending so we can cater for tea and coffee.

Eco-Council News - Can you help?

St Andrews Eco-council are organising a fund raising drive to enable us to launch a Send a Child to School campaign in collaboration with Action Aid.

We will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday 4th November to collect old clothes and shoes for charity.

Could you possibly fill a black bin bag with good quality second hand clothes and shoes that you or your children no longer need? The bags need to be returned to school on Friday 4th November.

Any contributions will be gratefully received - please use black bags or large carrier bags.
