Parents and pupils - Many thanks for all the lovely gifts, cards and kind words. Your kindness and thoughfulness is very much appreciated. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable Summer. I know some P6 pupils will be revising and continuing with AQE practice tests but please remember to have a good balance of work, rest and play!

I look forward to seeing everyone after the holidays and I wish all the P7s every success in their next schools. 

Stay safe,

15/6/20-PLEASE find P6/7 Plans for this week below notes to P7!


On Friday 26 June 10-10.45am we plan to host a special 'send-off' for all P7 pupils. To comply with government safety regulations we would ask that pupils arrive in their parent's car and drive into the school playground where you will be directed  to a suitable parking space. Pupils will be able to collect their 'leaver's goodies' individually, one at a time and everyone will get to enjoy this event together and share in the fun.

We felt that this would be a nice opportunity for P7s to see each other, albeit at a distance and for staff to say their goodbyes. Specific details to follow nearer the time. SAVE the date and time for now and please confirm attendance via email ASAP, thanks. This event is exclusively for P7 pupils only.

Later on in the year when safe, we hope to hold our P7 Awards Ceremony and party as usual.


P7 BOOK RETURNS - Can P7 parents please return ALL books, novels and resources belonging to the school from Thursday 18 June- Thursday 25 June. School will be open every day from 8.30am-2.30pm for the drop-off. No access will be allowed so books will have to be left on the table, just inside the front door.

NB: These dates are for P7s ONLY. All other pupils will be given a specific date and time.

1. Positions of responsibility you have had @KS2 eg. school council rep, librarian, buddy, helper etc

2. Have you represented Anahilt at eg football, rugby, netball or hockey match (or similar) against other schools? List when and where if you can and record any wins!

18/05/20 P6 PARENTS - PLEASE do not download and use the AQE CEA PAST PAPERS as I plan to use EVERY test from September on! It is very important that the first time your child sees these papers is in school. This is to ensure accurate tracking and progress. Once complete in school, the tests can be re-done at home for revision purposes. Many Thanks.
11/05/20 P6 The SPG page I would like you to complete is PAGE 11, PREFIXES, NOT page 10. Thanks.

23/04/20 - P6 PARENTS: AQE Registration is due to open on 29th April 2020. AQE is moving to an online application process this year and the advice given is that schools, parents and pupils should continue to prepare for the tests in the home environment. Please refer to the AQE Ltd website for further details. PLEASE do not use the AQE past papers as I will be using these from September on, when the pupils are in P7. Thank you.


AVERAGES: Any parent who wishes to know the practice test average scores, please send me an email request.
