Important E-safety Information for Parents

It has become apparent in a number of classes across the school, that there has been a significant amount of discussion regarding the ‘Momo Challenge’.  As a school, we are keen to promote digital safety and encourage our pupils to stay safe whilst online, at both school and home, by making responsible choices.  This also encompasses our core values as a school and we therefore try to promote and encourage our pupils to share concerns and be responsible in their online usage.

Many parents/carers may already be fully aware from national media coverage that this is a challenge presented on certain social media outlets that many of our children use frequently.

We are always working hard to ensure online safety, and in light of current topics in the media we have attached some parent information as support below for you to peruse:

What Is the Dangerous Momo Challenge on Social Media? (Parent Video)

We hope you find all of this information useful in supporting your children and all our pupils and ultimately keeping them safe online.

Pr 7 Fundraiser

Thank you for the support today. We have raised about £208. The amount and quality of the baking was fantastic – plenty to tempt and feed everyone. The stalls went well and we all shared our talents and skills. We can cost out  our Edinburgh trip as we include the Disco money with today’s amount.

Have a lovely long weekend!

Pr 7 Simulation Day Experience

We were very proud of our class today. They dealt with the UNICEF emergency simulation event in a responsible, calm, respectful and cooperative manner.

We had a “debrief” after break and many of the pupils expressed feeling “annoyed” and that we they couldn’t trust us. We understood their emotions and hoped that the positive way in which they handled themselves proved to them that the experience was worthwhile. We were supported by Zoe, a UNICEF representative, who came into the class to work with us.

We spent some time reflecting on the situations of children around the world whose rights are denied for months and years due to disaster situation not just for 1.5 hours.

We were privileged to have been offered this experience as a trial school (only 1 other school has tried it out) and trust that the event will have been worthwhile.



Pr 7 Updates Feb 13th/Feb 15th


We have been invited to watch the Pr 5 and Pr 6 Scottish Opera Dress Rehearsal  Performance at the Culduthel Christian Centre. (1.30 pm)
