Facebook Page

Please note that Ben Wyvis Primary now has a facebook page and this will replace this blog page. We will be posting updates of events, activities and information on the facebook page.

Please note that if you have a query, the best way for this to be answered is still to call the school office.

Our new communication policy is going to be discussed on the 28th September at the Parent Council Meeting.

All parents welcome.

Annual update forms

Your child will have been given (or will be given tomorrow) an annual update form. It is very important that you return this form as soon as possible, so that we have the correct information and contact details for all children.

We are asking that all forms are returned by Wednesday 31st August.

We would really appreciate your help with this.

Ben Wyvis Parent Partnership

A message from the Parent Partnership:


EGM Wednesday

7th September 2016  6.30pm

Your Children Need Your Help

The Parent Partnership Committee are stepping down, if we do not have new members your school will NOT have a Parent Council, and parents will NOT have a voice.

In the last 3 years the Parent Partnership with your help have raised £25,000 for our school, mainly through fundraising and some from grant applications.

The Parent Council fought to keep our School Crossing Patroller. They have also supported the efforts to keep much needed school support staff.

With ongoing Highland Council cuts, the role of Parent Councils are more important than ever

The money raised has benefited all of the children at Ben Wyvis including the nursery.

Some things that the money has been spent on:

Outdoor Play Equipment, Library, Panto Trips, Sports Equipment, Sports Clothing, Drama Club Equipment, Science Experience Days, Drumming Workshop, Nursery Equipment, Peace Garden, Christmas Party Gifts, Donations to Classes.

Welcome back to our new term.

Welcome back! We have been enjoying the summer weather this week (finally) and we hope you had a restful break.

Our first monthly newsletter has been written, so please take a note of the dates this term. If you have any queries, especially if you are new parent / carer,  please just ask.

A letter will be sent from each class over the next few weeks to give you more information about what is happening in classes this term, so please look out for this too.
