School Uniform 2020/2021
If you have been given a loan of a laptop from school, then there is no requirement to return it to school until after the summer break. However, to ensure you can still use it during the holiday period you will need to log on at least once a week, ensuring that your user profile is maintained. Should you forget to do this, then it is possible to re-establish the connection but please telephone or email the school (perhaps using another device) and we will instruct you how to do this. firstname.lastname@example.org

Advice for Parents from Aberdeenshire Child Protection Committee
Educational Psychology Service
We are offering a phone service for parents/carers or professionals who would like to talk through any education or wellbeing concerns about a child or young person. The times of this service have now been extended as per the undernoted leaflet.
Parenting across Scotland
Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline. They have created a package to help support children and young people at a time when they are likely to be spending more time online. Families can download a pack according to their child’s age, each pack will contain simple 15-minute activities parents can do at home with their child using Thinkuknow resources. The packs will be renewed fortnightly. The site also has advice for parents and careers.
Scottish Child Law Centre
Would you benefit from a free legal advice service on children’s rights and child law in Scotland? Did you know that there is a service already in place for this. The Scottish Child Law Centre is very pleased to introduce their new website. The new changes will make it easier for all their advice line users to find out about their service and how to contact them. The new layout will make it easier to navigate the site and information contained within. Click on the undernoted link to visit their website:-
When Online Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe
Please see below document that explains the Roles & Responsibilities of young people and parents when accessing their learning online. Above all, you are a Fraserburgh Learner, and the Fraserburgh Way will continue to be Ready, Respectful and Safe when working online. If misuse is detected we will impose sanctions.
Key Workers Childcare Information
Please find below a link to the Aberdeenshire Council website for key workers to complete a request form to register their need for childcare. This form is to be completed by any parents and carers who consider themselves to be Category 1, 2 or 3 key workers who would have difficulties with sourcing childcare elsewhere. Help us assess the need of provision in this area.
Arrangements for free school meals for those in need
Families eligible to receive free school meals – not those offered universally in P1-3 – are to receive a payment to cover the cost of these (£12.50 per child per week) directly from Monday, 30th March 2020. Payments will be sent in four-weekly instalments during term time.
The council is able to make this payment to families in the same way as is done for school clothing grants. This only applies to families who are eligible for clothing grants too.
We have decided to continue the service in this way until further notice to ensure we comply with the social distancing advice now in place and to ensure equity of service provision for all of our families across Aberdeenshire. This approach will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
If you are facing financial hardship and believe you may now be eligible for free school meals, please apply online. Eligibility is usually based on whether you are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits or allowances
Arrangements for EY children will follow.
