RESPONSIBLE PARKING – A MESSAGE FROM MRS PEARSTON
It has been brought to my attention that some parents/carers are continuing to park irresponsibly around the school at drop off and pick up times.
Can I please remind families, for the safety of our children, to park responsibly when dropping off/picking up children from school? There should not be any parking on the double yellow lines, zig zags, the school drive or anywhere within the school gates.
I did inform our local police about the issue of dangerous parking around the school at the recent Community Council meeting.
After October, I will periodically be getting out and about at drop off and pick up times with our newly-appointed Junior Road Safety Officers (Sam Melville and Derren Walker in P7) to monitor the situation.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this.
Exciting News – Longstone Pupils help change the law.
Last year the P6’smade a video and sent it to the Scottish Parliament. It was made to let politicians know how children feel about the current law that allows parents to smack their children. The pupils used art work and song to express their opinions and were praised for the work they had done. Recently the Scottish parliament decided that they are going to change the law about hitting children.
