Parent Travel Mode Survey
Would all Pulteneytown Academy parents please complete this survey about
their children's journey to school, one per child. Paper copies are
available from the school office if you are unable to complete it
Other schools have their own surveys, so please use this link only for
Welcome back to another school year and a special welcome to new
children and parents joining the school. I hope everyone will have a
happy, busy year again this year. I will try to keep this letter brief
with only items you need to know about immediately and will follow up
with a longer letter next week when I have more time to write.
P1 – Miss M Watson
P2 – Mrs R Shuttleworth
P3 – Miss E Sutherland
P4 – Mr M Hughes
P5 – Miss S Falconer
P6 – Mrs M Foubister
P7 – Mrs L Harper (PT)
Additional Support Needs – Mr K Farmer
Mrs Budge, DHT, will be supporting the new teachers, teaching P1 and
giving support to Caithness Early Years Autism Centre along with her
regular management duties in the school and nursery.
There are no changes to the class based support staff this session. I am
pleased to let you know that Valerie will be joined in the office by
Miss Linsey Miller who will be replacing Carole. As she will not be able
to take up post until the beginning of September at the earliest,
Valerie will be doing some extra hours each day in the meantime. The
office will have someone available to help you either by phone or in
person from 9.00 until 11.00 and from 1.00 to 3.00 each day. Uniform and
routine matters can only be dealt with during these hours. If you have
an emergency during the middle session of the day and must get in touch,
please try to be patient as I will do my best to answer the door and
phone, but there may be some delays.
The menu will be remaining the same until October when there are
proposed changes. I have attached a copy for your information. We are
currently on week one. There has been an increase in price from £1.50 to
£1.55 per day effective as of the beginning of term. I would be obliged
if you could try to give your child the correct money whenever possible
for their lunch. You can of course pay weekly at £7.75 with any unused
money carried over to the next week.
Primary 1 Photograph - will be
taken on Monday 20 August at 10.00.
