|As Headteacher of Carnoustie High
School, it is my pleasure and privilege to write a brief
introduction to our school website.
contains all essential information regarding the
operation of the school, but of course it can do no more
than provide a brief summary of the many on-going school
activities and working practices. If you wish more
detailed information on any aspect of school life, or
wish to visit the school, then please do not hesitate to
contact the school office in order that appropriate
arrangements can be made.
If your child is moving from P7 to S1 in August then he/she will have the opportunity of an
extended induction period in June, during which
time he/she will, as far as possible, follow her/his S1
timetable. The pupils’ visit will be preceded by an Open
Evening for Parents/Guardians and it is hoped you will
be able to attend.
If your child is moving into any other of our year
groups then he/she will be given the opportunity to
visit the school prior to their enrolment.
Parents/guardians will also be given the opportunity to
meet with senior staff and have a brief tour of the
school prior to their child's enrolment.
Good home-school relationships are crucial
ingredients of an effective, and indeed happy
educational experience for any young person. In order to
further strengthen the very sound home-school
relationships that currently prevail within the
Carnoustie High School community, I would encourage you
to read and use this website to find out more about the
school and its daily operational procedures.
The school motto 'Deed Shaws Pruif' (deed shows proof) encourages pupils to show proof of
their learning deeds, and not just in the academic
sense. It is my firm belief that all pupils are
successful learners who through their
'Carnoustie Experience' will develop into
confident individuals, and who will be prepared to
make their way in the world by becoming effective
contributors and responsible citizens.
My colleagues and I look forward to welcoming you and
your child to Carnoustie High School.
