Moorfoot Neighbourhood Plan

The purpose of the MCC neighbourhood plan is to enable people who live and work in the Moorfoot area to work with relevant agencies and contribute ideas and activities that ensure the valued rural nature is maintained at the same time as supporting requirements for the area and communities to thrive.

A copy of the plan is attached.

If you would like to be more involved please contact the school in the first instance.

Merry Christmas

What a busy December we have had here at Moorfoot Primary School!  We have had our drumming performances, a nursery Christmas Stay and Play, our school show Cinderella and Rockerfella, our Christmas lunch, our Wider Achievements Assembly, a trip to the Fairy Trail at Archerfield, a Christmas Service at the Village Hall, a Christmas Movie afternoon, Christmas parties and a whole school trip to the Lyceum Theatre to see Wendy and Peter Pan.  We have even had visits from Santa Claus!

We enjoyed a whole school Christmas Sing-along this morning where each class has put forward two of their favourite Christmas hits.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone connected to Moorfoot Primary School a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019 when it comes.

I look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Tuesday 8th January.

Kind regards,

Lynsey Stevenson

UNDERWEAR RULE

The NSPCC Schools Service recently visited our school to provide the children with key messages about keeping safe.  It can be beneficial for these messages to be reinforced at home.

The NSPCC has developed some guides for all parents of primary school aged children  to speak to your child about keeping safe – called the Underwear rule.

 You can find guides to the Underwear Rule to help you have simple conversations about keeping safe from abuse at www.nspcc.org.uk/underwear

 You can speak to an advisor for further advice or request a hard-copy guide for parents and carers by phoning the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000. You can also visit www.nspcc.org.uk/parents for other advice on keeping your child safe.
