As our schools are now preparing for a full return next week, our blog will revert back to content for Balmedie School – thank you to all those accessing the blog for support and we hope you found this site useful during the lockdown and holiday period.
A number of support pages, in particular Ellon cluster resource references and home learning links, will remain and can be openly accessed at any time, however, fresh content will now generally focus on the Balmedie School and school community as originally designed.
In the event that Ellon schools move back in to a blended learning model then the blog will go back to being used as an additional communication resource to support all cluster schools.
As a final schools cluster post, please find below the latest update/links from Aberdeenshire Council on returning to school and school transport updates for parents (please note the letters containing the web links will have previously been released by your school this week).
