Visiting the School

We will be holding two open evenings for parents of children who are due to start school in the 2020-21 school year; those born between 01Sep2015 and 31Aug2016.  

The dates for our Open Evening events are as follows:
Wednesday 16th October 2019 at 6:30pm

Wednesday 23rd October 2019 at 6:30pm

This is an open event for you to come and hear a brief talk from our Foundation Staff and School Leadership team members, followed by a look around the Foundation Stage classrooms and department; and at this time you will have the chance to ask questions or discuss more with the school staff.  We will start promptly at 6:30pm on both evenings with a talk in the Key Stage 1 Hall, located in our Tullibardine Building, and you will be able to access this via the "Pre-school and Pupil Entrance" gateway on Tullibardine Road.  Thereafter we will progress to the Foundation department.  

You DO NOT need to book to attend these meetings, please just turn up on the evening. 

We organise these viewings in an evening to give the best opportunity for parents and carers to bring their ready-for-school aged children with them when the school is not already filled with pupils, noise, and the busy-ness of the day.  We appreciate that this does not always give a full picture of how life is during the normal school operational hours, but we take into consideration that our 90 four and five year olds don't necessarily like being in a goldfish bowl experience during their first weeks week in school.  Accordingly, if you attend one of the evening events you will have the opportunity to request a further visit to the school prior to the application deadline given by the Local Authority, but this will be subject to availability of staff and appropriate time slots.  Please ask on the night for further details.
