Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you for all your support again this week.
We know this is a long term, but we are proud of how our pupils continue to focus in lessons and make the most of opportunities beyond the classroom too. Well done in particular to our senior pupils who are working so hard in preparation for their national examinations.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,
Miss Claire Meakin

A plea from Mr Harvey and Mrs Watson to keep sharing information about our pupils’ achievements outwith school
We appreciate your support in ensuring arrive at school by the 8:35 bell. We have seen a significant improvement in timekeeping, particularly with junior pupils.
Celebrating positive behaviour and success is especially important to KGS. Please remember to contact the school to let us know of any pupils’ achievements out with the school. Pupils will receive a certificate and house points.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

We continue to update the ‘Support’ page on our website and a link to it is available here: http://www.kgsorkney.com/orkney-support-service.html You’ll notice we’ve categorised the support to try and make this more accessible for pupils and parents.
