Primary One children should NOT bring a school bag to school each day.
Children should bring a NAMED water bottle to school each day.
Individual Stationary will be provided for each child.
Snack and Packed lunch (when required) should be brought in a disposable bag or 'wipe clean' lunch bag/box.
Face masks are totally optional (for children to wear when leaving the classroom.)
P.E. Kits will remain in school - more information to follow soon.
Mr Anderson will be uploading a document outlining FULL returning to school details onto the school Website.
On the first day your child will take home a very important 'bag'.
Inside you will find lots of information with important DATES, TIMES and FORMS.
Please read through and send back the relevant documents.

9.00am SESSION 1
CHILDREN AND PARENTS:
Please wait back from the gate until all older children have entered the school.
I am absolutely delighted that you will be joining me
in Fort Hill Primary School P1 next year.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 26th August 2020.
Below you will find some important information regarding the arrangements we have put in place for your child starting school.
As you are aware circumstances are very different this year and we missed out on our Induction Meetings and 'informal' meet and greet sessions with you and your child.
In order to allow for a smooth and settled introduction for your child to the formal education system, we have arranged for them to start school DAILY for a short session, and intend to build on this throughout the months of September/October.
Your child has been allocated a daily session which consists of 15 pupils and will, initially, last for 1 and a half hours.
*For Your Child's Session and some other important information PLEASE see attached documents at the bottom of this page.
Session 1 will run from 9.00am – 10.30am.
Session 2 will run from 12.00pm – 1.30pm.
Unfortunately, due to recent distancing guidance, you will NO LONGER be able to attend an Induction Meeting with the class teacher as was previously arranged.
However, information Packs will be sent home with your child on their first day - this will help give you a little insight into 'life in P1' over the the next months.
If you have any questions I can arrange to meet with you.
We are having to adapt and change our teaching style, thank you for your co-operation and patience in this matter.
Split Sessions always take place during the month of September. This provides a more 'relaxed' and 'tailored' approach for your child, which should help them settle in and integrate into the Primary One classroom more efficiently.
Small groups also provides valuable time for staff - it allows adults to get to know your child on a more personal level and carry out observations to help inform future planning and teaching in P1.
Exact PROCEDURES will be shared when final arrangements have been clarified with ALL STAFF.
I will let you know asap!
I am looking forward to seeing you soon,
Mrs Debbie Wiggam.
