What we Heard / What we did
Compliments and Complaints
Litter. We had the pupils do litter a pick around the School and Community.
Pupils apologised to the local community for misdemeanors and we were complimented on the chewing gum being removed from the front of the school by the neighborhood environmental team (nets). They were very pleased with the enthusiasm of the pupils, who had raised funds for the gum removal.
Pupils apologised to our neighbours for the litter and some anti- social behaviour ! Our neighbours were then invited to the Awards Ceremony. The pupils also visited with flowers and chocolates.
Pupils were the best dressed – all in full school uniform.
Our excellent SQA Results were commended .
Our pupils were the best prepared and most enthusiastic.

The school, in conjunction with West Lothian Council will do everything it can to protect your child whilst they use the internet at school. Sites which have been deemed inappropriate by staff are blocked and all other internet sites are filtered to ensure students are unable to access with swearing, violent content etc.
Please note that this process is not 100% accurate and on rare occassions pages that should have been blocked aren't. In these circumstances and under the usage policy students are asked to report the offending page to staff.
