We cannot wait to welcome our new Primary One pupils in August. This is a very exciting time and we do not underestimate the responsibility and trust you have placed in us to support and guide your child for the next seven years. I look forward to building strong partnerships with all of our new families in the coming years.

We would appreciate if you could complete the friendship jigsaw letter to provide us with details of up to three friends your child knows. Each child will be with at least one of their choices. Please also star the name of one child if they are a particularly close friend. Please don’t worry if you are unsure of this information or your child is coming to school without an established group of friends. We will help them make new friends and will include them in all activities, so they soon begin to feel part of the community at our school. This information and further details relating to starting school in August should be completed on the form above and returned using the email address provided (LQuinn@hillhead-pri.glasgow.sch.uk) by Thursday 18th June. Please note, we are working to accommodate siblings attending school on the same days and are able to consider requests from key worker families (where both parents or a lone parent is in this category) and those with exceptional circumstances regarding the choice of days.
