Break and Lunchtime in the Village: Scotmid will be removing the queuing system, that has been in place for the last few weeks, as of Monday 16th March. This is on a trial basis and we would expect all pupils to be respectful and behave appropriately when in the village and local shops. Should there be poor behaviour then the queuing system will be reintroduced, which is not what anyone wishes. Please be respectful and use the local amenities appropriately.
