Headteacher Update – Week 5

Dear Parent/Carer(s),

I hope all is well with you and your family!  Moving forward into Term 4 we have been looking at new ways our pupils can access their home learning activities and to have the opportunity to speak to their class teacher.  The authority are therefore asking us to use Microsoft Office TEAMs!

P5-7 Class TEAM Groups

This week we will be launching our P5-7 class TEAM groups, therefore P5-7 parents will be receiving an email that contains your child’s log-in details to gain access to their class TEAM.  Miss Addis and Mr Pearce have been working hard to provide video and handout ‘How to Guides’ for you to make this process of accessing the class TEAMs as easy as possible.  The good news is TEAMs is accessible from all electronic devices!  So please look out for the email, if you don’t receive anything by the end of the week can you please email our admin address, Admin@sighthill.edin.sch.uk and we will get back to you.

Last week we also sent out a new parental permissions form for you to complete to allow your child to access their class TEAM, if you have not done so already please can you complete the form by clicking on the link below:

Sighthill PS Virtual Assemblies

Last week we uploaded our very first Virtual Assembly onto our school website, if you have not seen it already please do so.  Every Friday we will be uploading a new assembly which will have some of our school Fischy music favourites as well as a focus theme.  Please do join us every week for an end of week sing-song!

Stationary Packs

We currently have a number of available stationary packs for pupils who are needing refreshed home learning supplies.  If you require a new home learning pack, ie jotters, pencils, rulers, etc please contact us through the school admin email or via Mrs Paterson on 07716700096 and we will deliver them out to you.

Family Support

We are all still here to support our families in any way that we can.  If you are finding things particularly challenging or just need someone to talk too please do not hesitate to contact the school via email or phone Mrs Paterson on 07716700096 or email laura.paterson@sighthill.edin.sch.uk  We are hugely gratefully for the fabulous work that the Calders Residence Association is providing for our families along with other community agencies.  We will try our upmost to support our families through these uncertain and challenging times!

Please all take care!
