We are delighted to inform you that Cornbank Primary has been awarded a sportscotland Gold School Sport Award for 2018-2021.

The Gold School Sport Award is recognition of our achievements in putting sport at the heart of your school’s planning, practice and ethos.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Murphy and Miss Hopkirk for all their hard work and effort in making this possible, to Kate Murray our Active School’s Co-Ordinator for her support and to all our learners who have willingly joined in.

Well done Cornbank Primary School!!!

Rights Respecting Schools – Our Class Charters

The start of a new term presents a great opportunity to create charters within our classrooms.

A charter is a visual document that establishes an agreed set of rights-based principles upon which relationships can be based and which provide a language for shared values. Creating charters can support a positive learning environment for children and young people in the classroom and across the whole school.

Creating a charter helps to make the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) more prominent and relevant. It should be seen as a framework for both adults and children and young people on how to respect each other’s rights. A charter not only provides an opportunity to learn about specific articles from the CRC, but helps to establish and build shared values and relationships for creating a rights respecting ethos. The process of developing a charter models a rights respecting way of working in school.

We are very proud of the class charters we have prepared during our establishment phase at Cornbank and here they are below.  There are some very creative themes!!

Weather – Appropriate Clothing and Footwear

As the weather in Scotland in unpredictable, please ensure your child comes to school with appropriate outdoor clothing. We do request that if your child is playing on the field or in the maze that they have different pair of shoes to change into.

Thank you for your continued support.
