Off To A Great Start!


We have all enjoyed welcoming back pupils to Sciennes, refreshed and ready for learning after the summer break. We are very grateful for your support with school uniform and helping us to discourage the children from wearing jeans.  Please note that P1-P6 pupils wear navy blue, with our royal blue uniform reserved to distinguish our P7 senior pupils. (Summer dresses for girls should be blue or red.)

As well as our new Primary One pupils, we have many new pupils throughout the school who are already settling extremely well . We warmly welcome back Principal Teacher Ms Shona Pearmain and Class Teachers Ms Jenny Gaffney, Mrs Emma Kidd and Mrs Kat Watson from maternity leave. We are delighted to welcome Miss Jennifer Ferguson to P5 and Miss Nicolle Chewun to P3. Miss Sophie Mitchell, MA Student, joins the P5 team and will later join the P2 team.

Thank you for equipping pupils with sharp pencils, rulers, glue sticks, coloured pencils and erasers (which can also be borrowed) in pencil cases as well as a water bottle and full P.E. kit which includes a change of clothes and a change of indoor shoes in a P.E. bag. Pupils will require P.E. kits in school each week and we appreciate labelling of ALL items of clothing. P7 pupils will have the privilege of using the Meadows at lunch break from 12.45pm-1.15pm from Monday so should bring a change of shoes in a bag.

We encourage our pupils to be punctual, arriving ready to enter school by 8.50am at the latest and are grateful for your support in ensuring the children are ready to make their way into school from 8.45am. P1 classes will continue to line up and be escorted into school by their Class Teachers at 8.50am.

Further information can be found in our online weekly newsletter from Mrs Noble - The Sciennes Flyer.  Each year group will soon receive a paper copy Class Newsletter from their Class Teachers containing an overview of the term and detailing forthcoming informal 'Meet the Teacher' sessions. Each class has its own blog which will be added to throughout the year and you can access using the CLASSES tab above.

We regularly Tweet updates (which include posts from each of our school blogs, and also publish posts on our Facebook page) so we encourage you to sign up to Twitter and follow us to keep informed.
