Cross Arthurlie Primary School


We hope all families and staff enjoy a lovely October Holiday.

School closes at 3pm Thursday 11th October

and reopens at  9.00am on Monday 22nd October.


We are very proud to have a uniform at Cross Arthurlie and it's lovely to see so many smartly dressed pupils in school.

Please note that navy and grey are our school colours

- with white shirts/polo shirts.

The school office maintains a reliable year-round stock of items bearing the Official Cross Arthurlie logo.

Purchasing from the school helps us to buy in bulk and keep our prices low.  It also ensures you get the correct school logo.

As you can see, we have introduced a polo shirt

with navy banding around the collar and sleeves.

These cost £7.50 and are available to order from the school office.

Clothing Guidelines

Given that there is substantial parental and public approval of uniform, schools in East Renfrewshire are free to encourage the wearing of school uniform. There are grants available to assist with the cost of school uniform.

There are however, forms of dress which are unacceptable in school,

such as items of clothing which:

a) could, potentially encourage faction (such as football strips);

b) could cause offence (such as anti religious symbolism or political slogans;

c) could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing; dangling earrings, shell suits of flammable material in practical classes;

e) could cause damage to flooring;

f) carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco;

g) could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so.


  • Golden Time is a reward for pupils who behave well, work hard and obey our Code of Conduct. It is important for all pupils to aim towards this treat each week.

  • Each child has been given a  booklet which will help you find out how well he/she has performed.

  • Please sign that you have read it and return it to school each week.

  • Golden Time lasts for 40 minutes on a Friday and is a planned activity. All children start every  week with their Golden Time intact.

  • If the school Code of Conduct. is broken, a warning is given. If this action continues, children lose Golden Time in blocks of five minutes.

  • Very occasionally children lose all their Golden Time.

  • Children also have an opportunity to win back minutes.

  • If children have lost part of Golden Time, they will not have their treat until they have completed a task to remind them of our rules and how they can improve their performance.

  • If this happens, please speak to your child about why Golden Time has been lost and about how things could be rectified in the future.

  • If your child is a persistent offender, a letter will be sent to you. You may then be invited in to school to discuss how we can work together to improve matters.

  • On the whole most children in Cross Arthurlie are very well behaved and enjoy looking forward to their weekly reward.

  • We are grateful to parents for taking the time to chat with their children about their behaviour and signing the record book. 

On Friday afternoons, children now enjoy extended ‘golden time’.  We have tried to make this an exciting incentive for all our pupils.

P1-3 Golden Time is straight after lunch on Fridays and features lots of different fun activities.

P4-7 have the chance to choose from a range of activities in mixed age groups.

We try to  vary this activity list regularly. 


At Cross Arthurlie, we are keen to work with parents in helping children overcome their difficulties as they occur.

Many children have difficulties from time to time - sometimes with learning, sometimes with behaviour.

Some are temporary; others are longer term.


We have a process in place to ensure that we detect, deal with and track difficulties as effectively as possible.


1  the class teacher will report any concerns to the appropriate promoted member of staff, who would then assess the situation and decide whether a different approach or different set of tasks would be helpful.

Parents would be informed at an early stage so that more expert help could be sought if this was necessary.

2 If these difficulties persist, teachers would report their concerns to the Depute Head Teacher, whose remit contains the responsibility for support for learning. The nature of a child's difficulty would be assessed and strategies for support would be discussed. Again, parents would be kept informed of this.

Regular reviews of a child's progress would be held following the implementation of these strategies and decisions would be altered according to how well the pupil progressed.

3 Our inclusion facilitator, Mrs McGrane, provides support for learning and is able to provide us with more expert and detailed advice. Our Educational Psychologist would be involved when previous strategies have proved unsuccessful or when concerns regarding a child are more serious. 


  Please contact the school if you would like to discuss any aspect of Additional Support Needs with us.


Cross Arthurlie has been awarded Dyslexia Friendly School status by Dyslexia ScotWest.

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty, where a child is having difficulty with aspects of reading or writing when there is a clear difference between these and the way they perform in other areas of school work.

Mrs McGrane is our Inclusion Facilitator and also a Dyslexia Advisor. She will be happy to give you advice and information on all aspects of Specific Learning Difficulties.  (or visit Dyslexia ScotWest's website. )

Assessments may be carried out by Mrs McGrane and John Pugh (our Educational Psychologist) to establish the extent and severity of the problems that your child may be facing. parents will be kept fully informed throughout all stages of the process.



Achievement may be at whole school, individual, or group level. Some are of a very personal nature; others may be class-based, school-based or even community-based. We held an "Achievement Afternoon" on Tues 27th June to recognise and celebrate individual achievement.


Cross Arthurlie currently holds:-

  • Gold Award for Values and Citizenship

  • Platinum Award for Enterprise in Education

  • Green Flag for our ECO work

  • Health Promoting School
