FAQ for our New P1 Calderwoodies and Families - added 02.06.21 NEW!!!
We know that preparing for your child to start school is a very exciting time, but that you will also have lots of questions and, perhaps, some uncertainties – especially at this time, with some Covid-19 restrictions still in place in schools.  
 
In order to help, for 'Welcome Wednesday' this week we have provided a list of questions frequently asked by our new P1 parents and carers, with responses from our Parent Council. Please click here to have a read through them. The answers to these questions have been adapted in light of the current situation. There are certain things, such as whether we will still have staggered start and finish times, that we currently do not know the answer to. We will keep you updated with this information as soon as we know. 
 
We would also like to invite you all to a virtual information session on Wednesday 9th June 2021 at 7pm, hosted on Zoom by our Parent Council. This will be an opportunity for you to hear from Calderwood staff, meet our Parent Council and have an opportunity to ask any questions you have. You will receive a link to attend the meeting via email. 
 
In order to help us manage the questions, We have created a Google Form for you to put your questions forward in advance. Please click here to access the form, which will close at 9am on Tuesday 8th June to allow us to sort through questions ahead of the meeting.  

We look forward to seeing you all (virtually) on the evening.
