Emailing general information to parents
Email has proven to be an efficient and cost effective method of issuing general information to parents.
If you are a parent/carer and have not been receiving school information by email please email your details to the school office: email@example.com
Tempest Photography - S1 and S4 Photographs
Tempest Photographers are coming into Biggar High School on Wednesday 26th of October to take S1 and S4 individual and group photographs.
Please let the school office know if you do not want your child to have either an individual or group photograph taken. Information on how to place orders will be issued once we have the proof photographs.
Open Forum - November Reminder . . . .
As a school we consider we have a very inclusive and open door policy with regard to communication on any school related issues. In addition to the above general availability, it is my intention to set aside specific time once per month after school as I know parents/ carers can sometimes find it difficult to manage to school during daytime hours. This open forum will run from five o’clock until six o’clock. If there is an issue or area of school life where you require further information or want to share your views please contact the school to agree an appointment time and I will be happy to meet with you to discuss further at this time.
The next drop in is planned for Tuesday 8th November from 5pm to 6pm.
