Welcome back to all our pupils, staff and families, I hope you had an enjoyable holiday. We have started the term with high enthusiasm and are looking forward to building on our previous learning. I have been looking at pupil individual targets and discussing progress with staff. Staff have been focussing on school improvement priorities at our recent meetings and have linked with cluster colleagues to maximise learning opportunities. We unfortunately have had a couple of staff absences recently and I take this opportunity to thank the whole staff team for pulling together to ensure consistency of support for our pupils. What a great team we have at Invergarven! Sadly this is my last blog at Invergarven as I start a new post as Head Teacher of Barr and Barrhill Primary schools on Monday. Our Depute Head Teacher Julie will lead the school until Kimberley returns from her maternity leave. I have had a wonderful time at Invergarven and I thank you all for your support.
