School Improvement Planning

We now include a standing item in each month’s newsletter, detailing some of our School Improvement Work. This month, we are detailing some of our work in becoming a #ReadingSchool- GOLD AWARD. This involves fostering an enjoyment of reading across the ELC and school and encouraging good reading habits.

We have started back up with our very popular LPS Book Club which supports not only a reading culture but the cost of the school day.

Please see also a message below from our Reading Pupil Leadership Team in Room 8:

The Reading Leadership Group would like to start up a children's book swap station, similar to our school uniform and shoe rail.  We plan to have a shelf of children's books outside the school office. Parents/Carers would be able to choose books to take home for their children to read, then return and swap them for new books. 

We would also like to set up another children's book swap shelf in Feenans Keystore , across from Kildare Park, which would operate in the same way.

We are looking for the following donation items.  If you can help out, please send them in to the school office!

  • Children's picture books, novels, magazines, annuals, poetry books etc that you don't use or need any more
  • A low bookshelf with two or three shelves, if you happen to be getting rid of one!

Thank you in advance!

Internet Safety Session with PC Leggate for Lanark Learning Community

Dear Parents/ Carers,
Internet Safety Session with PC Leggate for Lanark Learning Community
8th February 2023 at 6:30pm
Underbank Primary School
Underbank Primary Parent Council wish to invite anyone interested to attend an Internet Safety Session with PC Leggate at Underbank Primary School on 8th February 2023 at 6:30pm.
The Internet Safety Session is aimed at increasing awareness of the risks posed to children online and ensuring their safety. The session for parents and carers will provide helpful information regarding internet security and safety in order to allow your children to use what is essentially a very useful tool safely on a day-to-day basis.
PC Leggate has extensive knowledge of the risks that can arise through internet usage and is well-placed to provide detailed and helpful advice regarding the avoidance of such risks. The importance of the Internet Safety Session as every child’s exposure to the internet increases cannot be overstated.
I would ask anyone interested in attending to email/call their own school office, who will collate numbers and communicate these to Underbank Primary.

The Parent Council of Underbank Primary look forward to welcoming many of you along to this event.
Kind regards,
Scott Martin
On Behalf of Underbank Parent Council
