Positive Relationships at MOL

Following last week’s Parent Council meeting, we are pleased to be able to share the school’s Positive Relationships draft policy. This policy updates the school’s behaviour management policy and sets out the school’s current approaches linked to Highland Council guidance. As it sets out in the draft policy we are working on a blueprint which encapsulates the information found in the draft policy, and which will also be shared with parents and the wider community.

If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the policy, please do not hesitate to email me at meg.snedden@highland.gov.uk

Thank you, Mrs Snedden

Playground today

Please be aware that the playground is still icy this morning. The gates are open for the children to come to school as usual but please take care on the paved areas.

The door beside the hall is open again this morning for children to be dropped off directly into the school building instead of going through their class decking doors.

Thank you

Celebration of Achievement

In the first of our celebration of achievement assemblies for this term, we were able to recognise successes in so many different ways across the school from P1-7.

Lots of our pupils spoke about how they keep practising until they reach their target, and don’t give up, which was a great message to share!

So, for our roll call this week we have:

  • P1A Eilidh for successfully learning to read words by sounding out her sounds¬†
  • P1B Ella for AMAZING writing all on her own
  • P1/2 Anya and Jacob for fantastic storytelling all about the gingerbread man
  • P2 Shannon for being a great friend
  • P3A Jessica for great writing re-telling her trip to the beach
  • P3B Emily and Struan for explaining how they work to reach their learning targets
  • P4 Caleb and Leo for all their learning about angles (and checking what others in the assembly know about angles too!)
  • P4/5 Jackson and Calum for fantastic learning all about time
  • P5 Grace represented her class as Mrs McKay spoke how welcoming everyone had been in class, and Grace described the P5 spelling system which got the thumbs up!
  • P5/6 Isla and Scarlett for their detailed fact files about Martin Luther King Junior
  • P6 Emily also for demonstrating great research skills on her Martin Luther King Junior fact file,¬†
  • P6/7 Ava for her commitment and can-do attitude to basic facts
  • P7 Olivia for effective script writing and alongside Gareth for technical ability with music apps.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a great range of highlighted achievements in just the first week back of term. Great job, everyone! We’re looking forward to sharing lots more successes in different ways across the school over the course of this term.
