Our ‘BOATS’ days begin!

Bring Our Adults To School begins this week

Parents and Carers are invited to join us in school on Wednesday 5th October between 7pm – 8pm when Mrs Marr will share our learning and teaching theories and principles with you.  Our focus for this visit is Active Learning:  Learning through Play in P1 and Glenable plus Quickstarts in P2 – P7.  As active learning is the core approach in our Nursery class, there is not a specific focus on Nursery during this presentation but Nursery parents and carers are very welcome to come along and take part.

Following the overview on Wednesday evening, parents and carers are invited to join us in class on Thursday morning between 9.00 – 10.00 (6th October) to enjoy the theory becoming practice.  Parents and carers are welcome to join in with the learning in their child’s class but also visit other classes to see what is happening there, too.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Gore Glen PS is ready to open for the very first time!

Building work has progressed rapidly over the last few months and our school is looking fantastic!

We are delighted to welcome all children on the first day of term, Monday 22nd August. Start and finish times are shown below.

Nursery Class:  8.30 start – 11.40 finish

P1 Class:  9.00 start – 12.00 finish (for the first two weeks of term)

P2 – P7 Class:  9.00 start – 3.25 finish

Children joining our Nursery Class can enter through the door to the Nursery which is directly beside the main entrance.

All other children should gather inside the front gate on the small play area, to the left of the main entrance.  Members of staff will be in the playground from 8.30 onwards to welcome you on our first day.  Children will come into school in class groups at 9.00.

Transition Events

During the summer term, we enjoyed lots of transition events which have hopefully helped children feel excited about joining us at Gore Glen PS on Monday 22nd August.

In order to further help our youngest children prepare, we invite our nursery class children and their parents to come for a short visit on Thursday 18th August at 2.00 where our nursery team will show children round and chat briefly about nursery procedures for the start of term.

We also invite children who will be joining our ASN area and their parents to come for a short visit on Thursday 18th August at 2.30 where our ASN team will show children round and chat briefly about school procedures for the start of term.
