Social Security Scotland’s new Best Start Grant School Age Payment went live yesterday Monday 3 June 2019 for applications on-line and by phone. Please find attached a Q&A factsheet which provides further information.
The payment provides families in Scotland, who are on a low income, with £250 to help with the costs of a child starting school. People can apply around the time a child normally starts Primary 1 and if they get certain benefits or tax credits. For this year that means if their child is born on or between 1 March 2014 to 28 Feb 2015.
Applications can be made from 3 June 2019 until 29 February 2020 either:
The Best Start Grant School Age Payment is the third of the Best Start Grant package of payments to families in Scotland who are on a low income to help support their child during their early years. For help to apply for all benefits or entitlements including the Best Start Grants, please contact the Welfare Support Team: telephone 0800 090 1004 or email email@example.com. (Where appropriate home visits can be made).
Nursery P1 Transition Lunch Visit
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be unable to offer a lunch for parents tomorrow (Tuesday 28th) at the P1 Transition Lunch Visit, however, parents are still very welcome to come along and experience lunchtime routines with your child as planned at 11.20am.
We will now offer a further lunch visit experience on Wed 12th June at 11.20 where parents will be able to eat a school lunch with your child. For menu choices, please complete the form as below and return to office along with payment for this meal which is £4 (Please note, that on this day, nursery pupils transitioning to P1 will be given their meal for free; otherwise the cost is £2.30 for the school dinner).
For both days, parents should come to the Nursery entrance for 11.20am where they will be met by ELC staff. Also on Wednesday 29th May children who have pre-booked will have lunch with their buddies then out to play until 12:30 in the school playground.
We look forward to seeing you with your child at this exciting time in the countdown to P1!
Nursery Sports Day
Following on from last week’s postponed Sports Day, we would now like to confirm that the new date for Nursery Sports will be on Thu 20th June. This will also incorporate the Nursery Fun Day with Sports Day beginning at 9.30am on the MUGA with the Fun Day kicking off from 10.30-12.30. We hope that this will allow as many parents as possible to come along to see the sports and for the children to enjoy time together afterwards during their fun day. Parents are welcome but not required to stay for the fun day.
This week sees our MOL Summer Fayre on Thursday May 30th from 4-7pm! We have loads of exciting stalls lined up to keep everyone busy and entertained, including such favourites as the tombola, raffle, lucky dip, BBQ, hook a duck, beat the goalie, zorb balls, sponge the teacher and even, for 2019, the return of gunge the headteacher!
P6 and P5/6 pupils have been working extremely hard to pull this event together and we are grateful to them, the wider school and staff who have worked hard preparing for the fayre. We would still appreciate further contributions for the fayre – this includes prizes for the raffle, filled jars for the jar stall, teddies and general prizes for the teddy and general tombola. These can be dropped off at the school office or taken into school by your child during the week. Finally, we would appreciate your support filling the home bake plates that went home on Friday for everyone to enjoy on the day.
Thank you to everyone for your support and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday for the MOL Summer Fayre 2019!
