Education Scotland Inspection Findings

As you know, a team of Her Majesty’s Inspectors visited the school and ELC in May.  Their Summarised Inspection Findings (SIF) will be published on Tuesday 27th August. A letter from the inspectors to parents/carers will also be published. Both the letter and SIF will be available on the website Education Scotland from Tuesday.  The letter and SIF will be emailed out to parents/carers  on Tuesday 27th August and if you require a paper copy please inform the school office.

Teachers will be sharing the letter with the children too.

Hilton Water Bottles


All P1-7 children will be given a water bottle this week with their names on.  These water bottles should be brought to school daily with water please no juice.  It is really important to stay hydrated so we thought we’d buy everyone a bottle!

Thank you

Ms B 🙂



Lunch Menu This Week


There is a typo on the Highland Council school/ELC lunch menu so just to clarify, this week’s menu  is WEEK 4 (it states 29th August, rather than 19th).

Tomorrow’s school lunch is chicken curry/tomato past bake/ham sandwich

ELC menu is chicken curry/tomato past bake.
