How to Find Us

Thank you to everyone who has voted so far for us at Tesco, Lanark. Voting remains open until 31st January 2024. Every blue token counts towards funding to further develop resources and opportunities at our 4 Seasons Outdoor Classroom.

We now have 100% of our families on Parents Portal in the Primary School! Thank you to everyone for their commitment to this and to Mrs Japp for providing support to parents/carers where needed with logins etc. This is now our main means of communicating in the Primary School for consents, letters etc.

Community spirit was in abunbance at our Bonfire Bake today! Thank you to our Parent Council for planning the morning and to all our bakers in our ELC and school for their delicious goodies. £363 was raised to go towards school funds in just over an hour!
