Instrumental Tuition

Miss Munro will be co-ordinating this for the school going forward. New channels have been created in the P5, P6 and P7 Teams with lessons for pupils who received instrumental instruction pre-closure. These will be updated and available for access by close of play every Thursday.

Learning Journals – Summer Term

We have now published our final round of termly observations of learning via Learning Journals. These recent entries share learning that has been offered to and experienced by our pupils through Digital Learning since the schools closed.

We will also share our annual pupil progress reports via Learning Journals on 22nd June. These reports will cover: Literacy, Numeracy/Maths, Health and Wellbeing as well as Religious Education. They will communicate pupil strengths in and next steps for each of these curricular areas based on assessment evidence up 20th March 2020.

If you still need to register for Learning Journals or have any other questions about the above information, please do not hesitate to contact me via the admin mailbox ( Please note that there was an issue with some logins earlier today. We are working with Learning Journals to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.

Our next offer of jotters, pencils etc will take place on Monday 1st June from 9.30am-10.30am. I’ll share further details next week. Thanks again for the high level of up-take with this offer on Monday.

May Devotions – St Cuthbert’s RC Church and Our Lady, Mother of the Church

Fr Duffy has posted May Devotions on the St Cuthbert’s Catholic Church website as well as that of Our Lady’s Currie. The quality of both content and presentation is excellent and well worth viewing.

Thanks to those who took part in the online Mass to celebrate Ascension Day via the link posted yesterday. Fr Duffy passes on his best wishes to you all.

Kind regards

Pat Brack, Acting HT and all at St Cuthbert’s Primary.
