Parents should use the catchment area checker – https://t.co/0nhJEmFQcX – to select their preferred school and enroll their child from 10 January 2022. Your catchment school will then be in touch to discuss your application from 17 January 2022 onwards. pic.twitter.com/saZiFFbyZ7

The School and ELC have now re-opened at 11.00 am as staffing levels and the weather has improved. Thank you.
Blackwood P.S. & ELC – School will be closed for the remainder of the day due to weather. Hopefully see you on Monday. Thank you.
This term the Care Inspectorate have launched a campaign to help keep children safe by raising awareness of how, and why, they could leave a childcare setting without a responsible adult
As a result they have introduced Simoa, the elephant, to all ELC settings, to safeguard, protect and support children’s wellbeing.
Simoa always remembers:
Be alert to all potential risks in your setting.
Look around and inspect the environment to make sure a child can’t leave an area without staff or their parent/carer.
Regularly check that all children are accounted for particularly when they are outside, on outings or using transport.
Observe children and think about their feelings and emotional security – use these observations to support children to feel loved and secure.
Assess and take action to keep children safe.
A link to the poster introducing Simoa can be found below. The poster is currently displayed both within our nursery and at the nursery front entrance.
