A reminder about the Parent Council Meeting

Please come along to our next Ben Wyvis Parents Council meeting this Wed (24th), 6pm.  There are some really key issues about education budget cuts and proposals to change how the school is managed that will be discussed in addition to the lighter touch of fundraising events and general updates.  So we would welcome all input to ensure your views are represented.

Summer Childcare Provision

Dear Parent/Carer,

The Highland Council is considering offering 4 weeks of Summer Childcare Provision at local schools and would like to assess demand.  Please can you follow the link and complete the ELC Summer Provision Parent Survey.

At present the proposed schools include Ben Wyvis, Miller Academy Primary, Milton of Leys, Merkinch, Aviemore and Inverlochy. This may be subject to change. Parents can access the service at any school based on availability.

Thank you.

Ben Wyvis Football Match

Well done to the boy’s who played against Park Primary last night. The boys won 4-3! They all played very well and their attitude was brilliant.

Thank you to Rory Cross and the Senior Students, Logan Mackenzie and Josh Leven who have helped coach.

Parent E-Safety Survey

Click SafePlease click on the link below to access the updated survey. We would really appreciate if parents and carers took a few minutes to complete the questions.


The last survey did not work very well on Survey Monkey and Google Forms should allow for a more detailed response.

All responses are anonymous and we will be updating our e-safety policy next term with pupils and with the Parent Council on Wedensday 24th January at 6pm.

Chromebooks have arrived, but the network upgrade will not be compete until April, so children may use a small class set but will not be taking them home in P6 / 7 until at least May / June.

When a child reaches the end of their time at Ben Wyvis the chrome book will have to be returned to school.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Mrs Mackie


Websites that help children stay safe on-line:

Kidsmart gives you lots of advice on how to stay safe online. There’s a section for kids under 11 years old and a separate section for those over 11 years old.

Test your knowledge of internet safety with this quiz from CBBC Newsround.

Thinkuknow is brought to you by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre. You may have seen some of their video clips on National TV recently.
