Policies & Procedures

Home/School Communication

We encourage all parents to contact their child’s class teacher to share any initial concerns or questions.  This can be done by email, telephone or by sending in a note or calling the office to arrange a meeting.

Parents are also welcome to contact the Head Teacher directly.  The best way to do this is through email: abernethy@pkc.gov.uk

General enquiries should be sent by email to: abernethy@pkc.gov.uk or communicated by telephone on 01738 472676



A member of staff is always available to administer first-aid etc. over the school day. An incident form will be sent home if your child has received medical attention we ask that you sign and return the form. If a head injury occurs we would always phone home.

Parents are asked to co-operate by not sending to school children who are feeling unwell or who have not fully recovered from an illness. Children should not take any medication to school. In cases where medication is required to be administered during the school day a form must be completed first. We ask that courses of antibiotics etc. are timed to be taken outside of school hours where possible.

Details of exclusion periods can be found here

If a child becomes ill or has an accident in school, our normal procedure is to inform the parents and judge what action is to be taken after consultation with them. If we find we cannot easily contact either parent, and judge that urgent medical attention is necessary, we will normally take the child to the Casualty Department at Perth Royal Infirmary Hospital or phone 999. Thereafter we will try again to contact the parents.

Parents are requested to ensure that the school is kept informed of any change as to arrangements for making emergency contact, or of any medical condition which could affect their child’s education.
