Facemask Guidance – 31.08.20
September 1st, 2020 at 8:28 am

Please find the guidance which was issued to all school transport providers. 

You will be aware that the Scottish Government has announced that from Monday 31 August all pupils should wear face coverings when travelling on school transport, unless they are exempt. Pupils may be exempt if they are aged under 5 years or they have a relevant health condition. Information on face coverings can be found here – https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-phase-3-staying-safe-and-protecting-others/pages/face-coverings/.

 

• The onus is on schools and parents to do what they can to ensure pupil compliance.
• There is no requirement for drivers to enforce the wearing of face coverings.
• Parents/pupils are responsible for ensuring that pupils have their own face coverings.
• Pupils should wear a face covering before boarding the vehicle and for the entire duration of the journey.
• Pupils who are exempt from wearing a face covering are not required to show proof to the driver.
• If any pupils travelling by minibus/bus/coach do not have a face covering the driver should allow them to board. Drivers should not challenge any pupils who are not wearing a face covering.
• If drivers have particular concerns or a large proportion of pupils fail to comply you or your driver should report this to the school.
• If any pupils travelling by taxi/private hire car do not have a face covering the driver should if possible provide the pupil with a disposable mask. If the pupil waiting to board is accompanied by an adult the driver can refuse travel. If there are situations where pupils repeatedly fail to wear a face covering this should be raised with the school.

Huntly Green Travel Hub
August 12th, 2020 at 12:06 pm

Dear parents/carers,
We would like to remind you that we are still looking for pupils to take part in the Green Routes to School research project, which will inform the future activities of the Huntly Green Travel Hub. This research aims to find ways to make it easier and safer for kids in Huntly to cycle or walk to school.
We would like to invite your child/ children to fill in an anonymous online questionnaire about how they get to school, and their thoughts on cycling and walking in Huntly. This should take 10 minutes to complete, and all participants may be assisted by an adult.
All children from Gordon Primary School and The Gordon Schools are invited to take part. Their thoughts and opinions are very important in this research, and we are very grateful for all participation.
If you would like to sign your child/ children up to participate, please use this online consent form
You will then be sent a link to the survey for your kids via email.
If you have any questions, please contact k.gillies.19@abdn.ac.uk.
Thank you.

OURWBESITEBANNERFRONTPAGE

At The Gordon Schools we have recently renewed our Vision.

This guides our everyday actions and expectations and is a statement of what we are trying to be and do as a School.

An easy way to remember our Vision, is using the initial of our School – T G S

 

 

 

Together

Is about treating one another positively, kindly and with respect. We are all a part of the School community, the Local Huntly community and beyond. Our actions here affect other local, national and international communities. We must consider what consequences our actions will have on others and on our environment, both locally and globally.

 

Growing

We need everyone to value and look after their health. This includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

TGS should be a happy place, with support for everyone to feel good about their health. We want you to develop confidence and resilience for life in and beyond School.

 

Succeeding

Success means being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. If you succeed with this then you will learn as well and achieve as much as you can. Have a growth mind-set – explore new things and aim for future successes! At TGS we want you to be proud of your achievements and successes and we will celebrate those with you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information – we will be happy to help.

Mr P Gaiter
Rector
The Gordon Schools, Huntly
