Rights Respecting Schools
We are a Rights Respecting School. All classes have created a class charter to show their rights and responsibilities. The document attached below (Parents' Guide to RRS) is from a parent who is working with our staff to develop the use of rights and responsibilities in school and at home. Our thanks go to Mrs Penman for her help. The link below will give you more information on Rights Respecting Schools.
Glow - Guide for Parents
Glow is the world’s first national safe and secure online community for pupils, parents and teachers. It is an award winning national intranet for education, developed exclusively for Scotland’s educational community. Enhancing and supporting pupils’ learning, Glow allows pupils to learn using the tools of technology they are familiar with. The sort of personalised learning that Glow can offer children and young people is a key aspect of Curriculum for Excellence.
All our children in primary 3-7 have a Glow username and have all been shown how to log on with their personal username and password. Class teachers will slowly begin to use this new resource in class for learning activities in and out of school.
Click on the link below for more information about Glow.
If your child forgets their password please remind them to ask their class teacher to reset it for them.

We use Edward de Bono's Thinking Hats thinking tool in nursery and primary school. It provides a framework to help students think clearly and thoroughly by directing their thinking attention in one direction at a time. The framework is split into six distinct categories - each category has a different colour to help identify the category and style of thinking.
White hat information and data
Red hat emotion and intuition
Yellow hat benefits and positive
Black hat gravity and caution
Green hat possibilities & alternatives
Blue hat overview and process
