Roseburn PTA

Roseburn PTA

The Roseburn Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) is a big part of Roseburn school life and also a valuable income source for the school – contributing to the funding of both vocational and recreational activities…from whiteboards to end of year discos!

The PTA is always on the look out for new members and new ideas – if you’re interested in joining us simply drop your name and contact details into the PTA Post Box, which is just inside the main entrance to the school; you can also speak to one of the PTA members, email our chair –  roseburnpta@yahoo.co.uk, or just come along to our next meeting in the school.

You’ll find further information by following the menus on the left.  Should you wish to view a copy of the PTA constitution click here.

Rights Respecting Schools

Roseburn is a Rights Respecting School.

We were awarded our Bronze Rights Committed in January 2019.

Each year, each class from p3-p7 elects a Rights Respecter. They meet regularly to update the Silver Action Plan and agree next steps.

Our Rights Respecters for session 2019-20 are:

At Roseburn we have Class Charters to help us learn about Children’s Rights. Our Rights Respecters are working together to create our Playground Charter. These charters help us to make sure everyone knows their Rights and can enjoy these Rights together.

When we create Charters for our school we explore the UNCRC and all of the Rights within it. We then think about what we can do (children and adults) to help everyone enjoy these Rights – our ‘Rights Respecting actions’.

Charters are a powerful way of learning about the importance of Children’s Rights, what these are and why they are so important.Role of the Rights Respecting Team

  • To make sure everybody’s rights are protected in school. and remind them what their rights are. 
  • Help with local community and global fund raising. 
  • Share the rights of the child at assemblies and ROM. 
  • Display the article of the month (ROM) around the school.

This month’s ROM is Article 19



The children have settled in well in their new class and are picking up the class routines quickly. It was great to see so many parents and carers at our Meet the Teacher evening this week.  I hope you found the evening informative.

Here are some key pieces of class information you may find useful:

Home Learning  A home learning grid will be issued every four weeks (on the 1st Monday of each month) This will be posted on our class page of the website.  It will include information on what we will be learning in class and lists ways you may be able to help support your child’s learning at home.  We will be sharing our home learning in class on Mondays and Fridays so your child will need to make sure they have their home learning jotter in school on these days.

Clothing Please make sure your child’s belongings have their name on them.  This includes all clothing, coats, gym kit, water bottles and lunch bags.  It makes it so much easier to return lost items to their owner if they have a name on them.

Library Our class visit the school library on Thursdays.   Children are able to borrow up to 2 books at a time.

Cursive Writing The children are developing their skills in cursive writing.  An information sheet about the cursive style has been sent home.

Parent Helpers Do you have a spare hour during the school week ?  We are always looking for volunteers to help with group work, trips, etc.  If you are able to help in any way please let Miss Fraser know.

Tissues There seem to be a few runny noses in class at the moment.  We would gladly welcome donations of tissues if you could spare a box.

Please let me know if you have any questions/queries
