Happy Holidays!

That’s it! Term 1 done and dusted and what a busy term it has been for everyone at Bridgend. We have enjoyed so many things over the past few weeks, including:

Day Of The Dot, Working on Kindness, Bike to School Week, P7 Day Trips to Loch Insh, Rugby Taster Sessions, Cross Country Taster Sessions, Feis Rois, swimming lessons….. the list goes on!! Have a look at our photo gallery below to see what we’ve been doing.

We’ve also been working hard thinking about good manners, making positive choices and showing kindness to each other, ALWAYS. As well as HAVING FUN!

We will continue our work on all of these things when we come back together on Monday 25th October. Remember, the school day starts for EVERYONE at 9.00am. See you then!

P7 Loch Insh

We were absolutely delighted to be able to offer our P7s 2 separate day trips to the Loch Insh Outdoor Centre during this term. P7 were able to take part in a number of activities which included: Archery, Tubing, Bushcraft, Orienteering, Paddleboarding and Canoeing. The trip encouraged pupils to develop and form new relationships with each other and complete team work and problem solving tasks outdoors.

We had a great time exploring the wonderful outdoors and taking part in the activities. The Primary 7s represented Bridgend brilliantly. Have a look at our photo gallery to see what we got up to. I think you can tell by the smiles on their faces, P7 had great fun!

COVID Guidance

Please see important information below from Highland Council:

Children who are sick should not attend school and where a child has symptoms that could be from COVID they should stay at home and have a PCR test booked. Once well and with a negative PCR test, they can return to school.

If a case of COVID arises in a member of staff or student at a school, letters will be issued to those who have been in contact with the case which will explain what action needs to be taken. There will be no need for school contacts to self-isolate unless they are contacted by Test and Protect. In the event of further cases in the school, additional action will be taken and in the event of a significant outbreak advice will be sought from the Health Protection Team and actions undertaken depending on the specific circumstances.

End of Week 1

Wow! That was quick, can you believe that’s the end of week 1 already! We have had a great time welcoming back our Bridgenders this week and it’s been brilliant to see so many happy faces returning to school.

Have a look through our photos to see what’s been happening this week!

Welcome Back

We are really looking forward to welcoming all of our ‘Bridgenders’ back to school tomorrow! Just a wee reminder of the start times for tomorrow:

Children in P4-7 and the P4 children in the P3/4 class will start at 9.00am. The teachers will gather them in from the playground at 8.55am.

Children in P2-3 and the P3 children in the P3/4 class will start at 9.10am. The teachers will welcome these children from their classroom doors.

Parents with P1 pupils should bring their child to school at the time they were allocated back in June.

Nursery children will be welcomed from 8.50am.

A reminder that if you are entering the school playground, please wear a face covering (unless exempt) and maintain physical distancing between other adults.

We look forward to seeing everyone again tomorrow!

Happy Holidays

It is hard to believe that that is the end to another session and what a session it has been! We started the year adapting our school to keep us safe from COVID-19 and then said farewell to our head teacher of nearly 21 years, Mr Scott.

Later, in November, we were delighted to welcome our new head teacher, Mrs McCarthy to Bridgend.

Just after Christmas, we faced another long lockdown, where our fantastic learners showed RESILIENCE, RESOURCEFULNESS and RESPONSIBILITY by coping with the challenging demands of online learning and working at home.

Thankfully, we have been back together at Bridgend for some time now and we have enjoyed learning in school and working together.

Well done to all of our Bridgenders for sticking with it through this challenging time! We would also like to thank the wider Bridgend community – staff, parents / carers, the parent council for their amazing support throughout this year.

It’s also time to say farewell to our P7s, who will now make the next big step into secondary school in August. From everyone at Bridgend, good luck and enjoy the opportunities and experiences that the Academy will offer!

Enjoy your summer holidays everyone. RELAX, ENJOY and most importantly stay safe.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Bridgend on Tuesday 17th August @ 9am!
